Two soccer players start from rest, 33 m apart. They run directly toward each other, both players accelerating. The first player’s acceleration has a magnitude of 0.58 m/s2. The second player’s acceleration has a magnitude of 0.50 m/s2. (a) How much time passes before the players collide? (b) At the instant they collide, how far has the first player run?

1/2 (.58) t^2 + 1/2 (.50) t^2 = 33
t = 7.8 sec
1st player runs 17.72 m
