A truck travels at a constant speed of 28.0 m/s in the fast lane of a two-lane highway. It approaches a stationay car stopped at the side of the road. When the truck is still 1.2x10^2 m behind the car, the car pulls out into the slow lane with an acceleration of 2.6 m/s squared.
a)how long will it take the truck to pass the car?
b)how far will the car have travelled when the truck passes it?
c)if the car were to maintain this acceleration, how fast would it be travelling with it overtakes the truck?
