A car that is traveling along a highway at a constant speed of 16 m/s. Suddenly you see a truck traveling at constant speed (3 m/s) that is on a track to cross your lane from an alley on the right and is moving into your lane. the car’s max acceleration is 6.0m/s2, and your reaction time is 0.75s between first seeing the truck and applying the brake or the accelerator. The distance from the side street, where you first notice the truck, to the right edge of your lane is 2.0 m and the lane also has a fixed width of 4.0m.The truck is 3.0 m wide.
