Pledge ______________________________________________ Instructions : Show your work to receive credit , and present your answers with 3 significant figures and proper units . 1. At t =0 car A and truck B are 180 m apart on a straight road. Starting from rest car A speeds up with a constant 8 m/s 2 acceleration. Truck B is traveling in the opposite direction with a constant speed of 16 m/s. How far away is car A from its starting point when the two vehicles pass each other? ________ 100 m __________ 2. A snowball rolls off a barn roof that slopes downward at an angle of 30°. The edge of the roof is 15 m above the ground, and the snowball has a speed of υ 0 = 5 m/s as it rolls off the roof. How far from the edge of the barn does the snowball strike the ground?
