Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes that is what I meant to say. I was thinking of when the sprinter reached their top speed when I wrote that Any idea how to solve it? I assume I am supposed to use the quadratic equation to solve for T right? But I am not sure how to set it up.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay here's the idea: In the first case, it is given; a = 2.8m/s^2 t = 4.3s Let, s = x Find final velocity using this data. For the second case, final velocity of first case = initial velocity of second case. final velocity of second case = 0 (finishes the race i.e. rest) s = 100  x.
