EX0: Two cars approach each other on a straight stretch of highway. The first car is traveling East at a constant speed of 25 m/s and the second car is initially at rest and accelerates to the West at 3.2 m/s2. If the cars are initially 400 m apart, how long does it take for the cars to pass each other? At what point on the highway do the cars pass each other?

EX1: Initially, an object is 25 m due west of the origin moving with a speed of 12 m/s in the direction 30° N of E. If the object undergoes a constant acceleration of 1.5 m/s2 in the direction 40° S of W for 10 seconds, what is the speed of the object after 10 s? Where is the object located after 10 s?
