a bicyclist is finishing his repair of a flat tire when a friend rides by at 3.5 m/s. two seconds later, the bicyclist hops on his bike and accelerates at 2.4 m/s^2 until he catches his friend? (a) how much time does it take until he catches his friend? (b) how for has he traveled in this time? (c) what is his speed when he catches up?
