Two people running a 5000 meter race. Cindy is running at 2.8meters/second. Jim starts 3000s late but is running at 4.2 meters/second. Both speeds are constant. How long does it take for Jim to catch up to Cindy? How far have they run when this happens? Solve for Jim’s time and calculate the displacement. Graph on a position vs time graph for each runner.
