9 An insect on the surface of a pond passes over an initially stationary fish with a velocity $\vec{v}_{i}=0.4 \frac{\mathrm{m}}{\mathrm{s}} \hat{i}-0.15 \frac{\mathrm{m}}{\mathrm{s}} \hat{j}$ and an acceleration $\vec{a}_{i}=-0.1 \frac{\mathrm{m}}{\mathrm{s}^{2}} \hat{i}+0.25 \frac{\mathrm{m}}{\mathrm{s}^{2}} \hat{j}$. 9.1 If the fish begins pursuing the insect immediately, what must the fish's acceleration be if it is to catch the insect in 2 seconds? 9.2 How far with the fish have traveled in this time?
