A student is running at her top speed of 5.5 m/s to catch a Shuttle bus, which is stopped at the bus stop. When the student is still a distance 41.4 m from the Shuttle bus, it starts to pull away, moving with a constant acceleration of 0.177 m/s2

For how much time does the student have to run at 5.5 m/s before she overtakes the bus?

t= s

For what distance does the student have to run at 5.5 m/s before she overtakes the bus?

d= m

When she reaches the bus, how fast is the bus traveling?

v= m/s

What is the *minimum* speed the student must have to just catch up with the bus?

v= m/s

For what time does she have to run in that case?

t= s

For what distance does she have to run in that case?

d= m
