A truck is traveling with a uniform velocity 24 m/s, when it passes a car at rest, at this instant the car starts to move and accelerate at the rate of 6m/s^2 in the same direction as the truck.
a.) How long will it take the car to overtake the truck
b.) How fast will the car travel before it overtakes the truck.
