Two soccer players start from rest, 27 m apart. They run directly toward each other, both players accelerating. The first player’s acceleration has a magnitude of 0.48 m/s2. The second player’s acceleration has a magnitude of 0.43 m/s2.

(a) How much time passes before the players collide? (b) At the instant they collide, how far has the first player run?
