physics

As soon as a traffic light turns green, a car speeds up from rest to 57.0 mi/h with constant acceleration 8.00 mi/h/s. In the adjoining bike lane, a cyclist speeds up from rest to 21.0 mi/h with constant acceleration 12.50 mi/h/s. Each vehicle maintains constant velocity after reaching its cruising speed.
