a delivery truck is 5 km away from a car. the two started at the same time and headed at the same direction. the delivery truck accelerates at 3m/s. if the car should overtake the truck in ten minutes, what should be the acceleration of the car?

  • college physics -

    3 m/s is not an acceleration rate. Recheck the wording of the question.

  • college physics -

    okay lets change that to 3 m/(s^2). how can we solve this.
