# Tom and Jerry relive!

Tom , on seeing jerry at a distance $$d$$, starts with velocity $$u$$ and moves with acceleration $$\alpha$$ in order to catch it . While jerry with acceleration $$\beta$$ starts from rest. For what value of $$\beta$$ will the tom overtake the jerry ?

$$\bullet$$ $$\displaystyle d= 5\text{ m}$$
$$\bullet$$ $$\displaystyle u= 5\text{ m/s}$$
$$\bullet$$ $$\displaystyle \alpha= 2.5\text{ m/s}^2$$
$$\bullet$$ $$\displaystyle g=10\text{ m/s}^2$$
