Problems on Trains Questions

1. Two trains are running in opposite directions in the same speed. The length of each train is 120 meter. If they cross each other in 12 seconds, the speed of each train (in km/hr) is



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:36 kmph
Explanation:
Distance covered = 120+120 = 240 m
Time = 12 s

Let the speed of each train = x.
Then relative velocity = x+x = 2x

2x = distance/time = 240/12 = 20 m/s

Speed of each train = x = 20/2 = 10 m/s

= 10*18/5 km/hr = 36 km/hr


2. Two trains running in opposite directions cross a man standing on the platform in 27 seconds and 17 seconds respectively and they cross each other in 23 seconds. The ratio of their speeds is ?



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:3:2
Explanation:


3. Two trains of equal lengths take 10 seconds and 15 seconds respectively to cross a telegraph post. If the length of each train be 120 metres, in what time (in seconds) will they cross each other travelling in opposite direction?



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:12
Explanation:


4. Two trains are running in opposite directions with the same speed. If the length of each train is 120 metres and they cross each other in 12 seconds, then the speed of each train (in km/hr) is:



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:36
Explanation:


5. A train running at the speed of 60 km/hr crosses a pole in 9 seconds. Find the length of the train.



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:150 meters
Explanation:
Speed = 60*(5/18) m/sec = 50/3 m/sec

Length of Train(Distance) = Speed * Time

=503∗9=150meter


6.  A train is 360 meter long is running at a speed of 45 km/hour. In what time will it pass a bridge of 140 meter length.



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:40 seconds
Explanation:
Speed = 45 Km/hr = 45*(5/18) m/sec
= 25/2 m/sec
Total distance = 360+140 = 500 meter

Time = Distance/speed
=500∗225=40seconds


7. How long does a train 110 meters long running at the speed of 72 km/hour take to cross a bridge 132 meters in length ?



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:12.1 seconds
Explanation:
Speed = 72 km/hour = 72*(5/18) m/sec
= 20 m/sec

Total distance to be covered = 110+132 = 142 meters

Time = Distance/Speed
= 242/20 = 12.1 seconds


8.  In what time will a train 100 meters long cross an electric pole, if its speed is 144 km/hr



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:2.5 seconds
Explanation:
First convert speed into m/sec

Speed = 144*(5/18) = 40 m/sec

Time = Distance/speed
= 100/40 = 2.5 seconds


9.  A train is 100 meter long and is running at the speed of 30 km per hour. Find the time it will take to pass a man standing at a crossing.



SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:12 seconds
Explanation:
As we need to get answer in seconds, so never forget to convert speed into meter per second.

Speed = 30 km/hr = 30* 5/18 m/sec
= 25/3 m/sec

Distance = length of train = 100 meter

Required time =
DistanceSpeed=100253=100∗325=12sec


10. An accurate clock shows 8 o'clock in the morning. Through how may degrees will the hour hand rotate when the clock shows 2 o'clock in the afternoon?
