Question details

This is a question from a Dynamics class. A car is stopped at a stoplight. The light turns green. At the moment the car begins to accelerate at a constant rate), a truck in the next lane passes the car (moving at constant velocity in the same direction) Develop an expression for the distance it will require the car to travel to overtake the truck. Use the analytical framework shown in class to establish vector relationships for the car and truck and then use these relationships to find the scalar distance down the road where the car passes the truck. Include a sketch of your reference frame, origin and coordinate system used to solve the problem
