Suppose that a senior driving a Pontiac zooms out of a darkened tunnel at 39.4 m/s. She is momentarily blinded by the sunshine. When she recovers, she sees that she is fast overtaking a camper ahead in her lane moving at the slower speed of 12.9 m/s. She hits the brakes as fast as she can (her reaction time is 0.36 s). If she can decelerate at 3.6 m/s^2, what is the minimum distance between the driver and the camper when she first sees it so that they do not collide?
