34. (a) Eq. 2-15 is used for part 1 of the trip and Eq. 2-18 is used for part 2: Δ x 1 = v o1 t 1 + 1 2 a 1 t 1 2 where a 1 = 2.25 m/s 2 and Δ x 1 = 900 4 m Δ x 2 = v 2 t 2 1 2 a 2 t 2 2 where a 2 = 0.75 m/s 2 and Δ x 2 = 3(900) 4 m In addition, v o1 = v 2 = 0. Solving these equations for the times and adding the results gives
