Last answer:
ANSWER: C Explanation: Speed of the 1st train = 120km/hr Speed of the 2nd train = 60km/hr If the direction is given in the same direction then we subtract the relative speed. Relative speed = (120 - 60) ... / 3 * 15)m =(750/3)m = 250m Therefore the length of the faster train is 250m

A train M speeding with 60km/hr crooses another train N, running in the same direction in 1 min. If the lengths of the trains M and N be 50m and 100m respectively. What is the speed of train N? A) 15 km/hr B) 61km/hr C) 51km/hr D) 50k/hr
A train M speeding with 60km/hr crooses another train N, running in the same direction in 1 min. If the lengths of the trains M and N be 50m and 100m respectively. What is the speed of train N? A) 15 km/hr B) 61km/hr C) 51km/hr D) 50k/hr
Last answer:
ANSWER: C Explanation: Let the speed of be train N be ‘x’km/hr Speed of M relative to N = (60 – x)km/hr = (60-x) * 5/18]m/s = (300 – 5x / 18)m/s 150 / (300 – 5x / 18) =60 2700/300-5x=60 2700=18000-300x 300x=15300 x= 153/3 x=51km/hr Therefore the speed of the train is 51 km/hr

A 250 m goods train takes 50 s to cross a person who is going in the same direction with the speed of 8 km/h. After crossing that person, the train can reach next station in 2 hr. How long that person takes to reach that station after being crossed by them? A) 2 ½ hr B) 5hr C) 3 1/2hr D) 1hr
A 250 m goods train takes 50 s to cross a person who is going in the same direction with the speed of 8 km/h. After crossing that person, the train can reach next station in 2 hr. How long that person takes to reach that station after being crossed by them? A) 2 ½ hr B) 5hr C) 3 1/2hr D) 1hr
Last answer:
ANSWER:A Explanation: Speed of the person = 8 kmph = (8*5/18)m/s = 20/9 m/s Then relative speed of train = (x-20/9)m/s As train takes 50 sec to cross the person Therefore 50 =250/(x-20/ ... 20,000 m = 20 km Thus time taken by the person to cover the distance of 20km= 20/8 hr=2 ½ hr

A) 250 kmph B) 487kmph C) 162kmph D) 312kmph
Last answer:
ANSWER:C Explanation: Given that the first one walks at 9 km/hr convert the speed in the unit of m/sec 9 km/hr = (9*5/18) m/s = 5/2 m/s = 2.5 m/s Another one walks at 10.8 km/hr ... the speed in the unit of km/hr Speed of the train = (45*18/5)kmph Speed of the train = 162 km/ hr

A train crosses a platform and a scooter standing on the platform in 20 seconds, 12seconds respectively.What is the length of the platform if the speed of the train is 25 km/hr? A) 55.8 m B) 75m C) 124m D) 68.5m
Last answer:
Answer: A Explanation: Given that, The speed of the train = 25km/hr = 25x 5/18 m/sec = 125/18 m/sec The train crosses a scooter in 12 seconds. Then, Length of the train = 125/18*12= 83.33 Now, ... 18(X +83.3)= 2500 18X=1000.6 X=55.58 m Hence the platform is 55.58 m long.

Length of train is 510 meters and speed of train is 63 km/hour. This train can pass a pole in 90 seconds, then find the length of the pole? A) 575mts B) 2500mts C) 1065mts D) 876mts
Length of train is 510 meters and speed of train is 63 km/hour. This train can pass a pole in 90 seconds, then find the length of the pole? A) 575mts B) 2500mts C) 1065mts D) 876mts
Last answer:
ANSWER: C Explanation: Given speed of the train = 63 km/hr = 63*5/18 m/s =17.5m/s Let the length of the pole = x mts Given time taken to cover the distance of (510+ x)mts is 90 sec. We know speed = ... m/s 17. 5 = 510+x/90 1575 = 510+x x = 1065 Therefore the length of the pole is 1065 mts

A train 560 m long crosses the platform of length 340 m in 45seconds. Find the speed of the train in km/hr A) 72km/hr B) 36km/hr C) 48km/hr D) 15km/hr
A train 560 m long crosses the platform of length 340 m in 45seconds. Find the speed of the train in km/hr A) 72km/hr B) 36km/hr C) 48km/hr D) 15km/hr
Last answer:
ANSWER:A Explanation: Length of the train = 560 m Length of the platform = 340 m Therefore, length of the train + length of the platform = 560 m + 340 m = 900 m Time taken by the train to cross the ... to km/hr, multiply by 18/5 Therefore, speed of the train = 20 18/5 km/hr = 72 km/hr

A train 170 m long is running at a speed of 22.5 km/hr. what time will it take to cross a 80m long bridge? A) 20 sec B) 40 sec C) 15 sec D) 30sec
A train 170 m long is running at a speed of 22.5 km/hr. what time will it take to cross a 80m long bridge? A) 20 sec B) 40 sec C) 15 sec D) 30sec
Last answer:
ANSWER:B Explanation: Length of the train = 170 m Length of the bridge = 80 m Therefore, length of the train + length of the bridge = (170 + 80) m = 250m Speed of the train = 22.5 km/hr Speed ... .25m/sec Therefore, time taken by the train to cross the bridge = 250 m/6.25 m/sec. = 40 seconds.
