Homework help for Physics, super Urgent!!!!!!!?
James Bond is sitting in his Aston Martin DB6 at a red stop light. At the instant that the light turns green a gang of terrorists roars past him in a truck travelling at 40 m/s. Instantly Bond gives chase, accelerating at 5.0 m/s. What distance does Bond travel before he catches up to the truck?

Did U know that acceleration units = m/s/s or m/s²
and are not = "m/s" which is the units of speed/velocity.
Distance traveled by Bond and Terrorists must be the same = d
Time from the instant light turns green to when Bond catches Terrorists = t
40t = 1/2(5)t²
40 = (0.5)(5)t
t = 40/2.5 = 16 s
d = 40t = 40(16) = 640 m ANS
