# Problem: A car capable of a constant acceleration of 2.64 m/s2 is stopped at a traffic light. When the light turns green, the car starts from rest with this acceleration. At the very same moment, a truck traveling with constant velocity 17.3 m/s passes the car. As the car’s velocity increases, it will eventually move faster than the truck and later overtake it. How far from the light will the car catch up with the truck? 1. 171.127 2. 43.6985 3. 116.654 4. 131.742 5. 210.032 6. 162.959 7. 259.102 8. 53.2193 9. 226.735 10. 323.646
