As you walk into a seedy motel and flip on the room light, you see a cockroach 1.0 m away from you! The cockroach scuttles away at a constant 1.6 m/s. Without missing a beat, you accelerate towards the cockroach starting from a speed of 0.90 m/s and accelerating at 4.0 m/s2.
Draw a sketch of your motion and the cockroach’s motion, labeling knowns and unknowns for both you and the cockroach.
How much time does the cockroach have before he meets his doom? In other words, when do you catch up to the cockroach?
How far does the cockroach travel before you stomp him?
