At the instant a traffic light turns green, a car starts moving with a constant acceleration a of 4.00 m/s2. At the same instant a truck, traveling with a constant speed of 10.09 m/s, overtakes and passes the car. How far beyond the traffic light will the car overtake the truck?

  2. Given that,
    the car overtakes the truck
    therefore their distance covered are equal.
    distance covered by the car
    x=1/2X4t^2
    x=2t^2 -------- (1)

    By the truck

    x=vXt
    ie,x=10.09Xt
