# Problem 2-101 - Linear Kinematics

A car $(c)$ with one headlight burned out is traveling at a constant speed of $18 \;m/s$ and passes a stopped police car $(p)$. The car is pursued immediately by the police cruiser, which has a constant acceleration of magnitude $2.2 \;m/s^2.$

(a) How far does the police cruiser travel before catching the other car?
(b) At what time will this occur? (Hint: Graphing may help to visualize this problem.)

Which of the following sets of graphs represents the situation in this problem?

(A)
