At the instant a traffic light turns green, a car starts from rest with a given constant acceleration 0.5 m/s^2. just as the light turns green, a bus, traveling with a given cinstant speed 16.0 m/s, passes the car. The car speeds up and passes the bus some time later. How far down the road has the car traveled when the car passes the bus?

physics 
Damon,
d = 16 t
d = (1/2) (.5) t^2 = .25 t^2
so
16 t = .25 t^2
t = 0 as we know
.25 t = 16
t = 64 seconds
d = 16*64 = 1024 meters
