Moderate# Acceleration and Displacement During a Car Race

CLMECH-MR1QM$

A toy car races a ball over a distance of $100\text{ cm}$. The car moves at a constant speed of $31\text{ cm/s}$ from the start line. The ball moves down an incline at an acceleration of $0.22\text{ m/s}^2$. Both objects start at the same time, with the ball starting from rest and the car starting at $31\text{ cm/s}$.

Assuming they have the same total distance to travel, how do the objects compare as they race at the $50\text{ cm}$ and $100\text{ cm}$ mark?
