A train is moving parallel and adjacent to a
highway with a constant speed of 30 m/s. Ini-
tially a car is 44 m behind the train, traveling
in the same direction as the train at 42 m/s
and accelerating at 3 m/s2.
What is the speed of the car just as it passes
the train?

  • physics -

    Here S=44m
    V=42m/s
    U=?
    a=3m/s²
    Now we know that
    2as=v²-u²
    2(3)(44)=(42)²-u²
    u=10√15m/s
