Homework Help: physics

Posted by Megan on Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 1:56pm.

This is the question to one of my physic problem.
A person standing outside their house is passed by a runner heading West at a steady pace of 3.3 m/s. Right when the runner passes by, the person accelerates towards the south at a rate of 0.36 m/s2 for 1.2 seconds. Determine how far apart the people are when t = 1.2 seconds.

I tried distance = 1/2at^2 but that did not work. Any help would be greatly appreaciated
