the speeder is moving a constant velocity of 18 meters per second. the patrol car starts from a still position and accelerates at a rate of 5 meters per second . using s(f) a function of distance find how many seconds it will take the patrol car to intercept the speeder let a = acceleration in meters per second squared =time in seconds. v=velocity in meters per second speeders distance s(t) =vt and patrol car distance s(t)=1/2at^2
