Problem 54P

Two cars drive on a straight highway. At time t = 0, car 1 passes mile marker 0 traveling due east with a speed of 20.0 m/s. At the same time, car 2 is 1.0 km east of mile marker 0 traveling at 30.0 m/s due west. Car 1 is speeding up with an acceleration of magnitude 2.5 m/s2, and car 2 is slowing down with an acceleration of magnitude 3.2 m/s2, (a) Write x-versus-t equations of motion for both cars, taking east as the positive direction, (b) At what time do the cars pass next to one another?
