    You said it was a trick question, so I counted all the "questions" in the page.

    I edited my post because I thought we were only allowed to answer one question.

    Oh and BTW, there were a lot more than 9, lol.

    I think the answer to number 6 is 12?

    INCORRECT

    INCORRECT and you edited your post.


    The purpose of a trick question is to trick you. You are incorrect in your assumptions.

    INCORRECT



    There are some major hints and helpers in these guys' answers.

    Question 2 again: I'm going to guess Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan (Elaida a'Roihan).

    INCORRECT

    If you have read the books and are not just googling this stuff, think in a broader perspective.

    Assuming that the officer is standing still (so 0 km/h), it will take the officer 17.5 seconds to reach the speeder (so the speeder and the officer will be at the same point)

    140/8 = 17.5

    I'm probably wrong cause I don't think the question would be that simple xD. But worth a guess to gain some information.

    km/h/s is not a proper unit

    I didn't see that someone had already answered Siuan Suanche :\

    It is when you're talking about acceleration.

    Read the question again and answer in four posts.

    so the cops acceleration from rest is 2.22222222 m / s^2
    police initial velocity = 0 m/s

    the car's velocity is 38.888888... m/s

    so let the instant the car passes by the cop be our starting time... and our zero displacement point


    equation for cop is

    x=1/2(a)(t)^2

    equation for car is
    x=vt

    so lets make them equal to each other

    vt=1/2(a)(t)^2

    38.8888t=1/2(2.22222)(t)^2

    this will give us the poitns at which the two cars are at the same displacement.... we have a 0 value (when the cars started cause we SET that to 0 displacement point.)

    38.8888t=1.111111(t)^2

    so we have a simple quadratic divide by t

    38.8888=1.1111(t)

    approximately 35 seconds assuming that the cop catches the person once the cop catches up to the car.

    Ask some science related questions. -_-

    And don't say there was already a Physics question up there, because that's more math than science. :P
