Physics

You're an investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board, examining a subway accident in which a train going at 88km/h km/h collided with a slower train traveling in the same direction at 25km/h km/h . Your job is to determine the relative speed of the collision, to help establish new crash standards. The faster train's "black box" shows that it began negatively accelerating at 1.8m/s 2 m/s^2 when it was 40m m from the slower train, while the slower train continued at constant speed.
