Two soccer players start from rest, 49.0 m apart. They run directly toward each other, both players accelerating. The first player has an acceleration whose magnitude is 0.574 m/s2. The second player's acceleration has a magnitude of 0.226 m/s2. (a) How much time passes before they collide? (b) At the instant they collide, how far has the first player run?
