 Question 330860: In drag racing, both vehicles begin at a dead stop, then accelerate through 1/4 mi. Let us say, for the sake of discussion, that our two vehicles are not quite matched in power. That is, vehicle A can accelerate from 0 mph to 60 mph in 5 secs., whereas the vehicle B can accelerate from 0 mph to 60 mph in 4 secs. So, the question arises, how would you calculate the position of each vehicle after t secs? For instance, t = 5 or t = 6. Note: remember to convert from miles per hour to miles per second.
