2 trains, 100 m and 120 m long are running in the same direction with speeds of 72 km/hr and 54 km/hr. In how much time will the first train cross the second?

Relative speed of trains = 72 - 54 = 18km/hr18km/hr = 5 m/sec

Distance = 100 + 120 = 220 mTime taken = Distance / SpeedTime taken = 220/5 = 44 sec

A 150 m long train crosses a bridge of length 250 m in 30 sec. Find the time the train takes to cross a platform 130 m long.

Distance = 150 + 250 = 400 mSpeed = 400/30 = (40/3) m/sec

Next distance = 150 + 130 = 280 mTime taken = 280/(40/3) = 21 sec

A train 150 m long, running at a speed of 120 km/hr, will cross a pole on the way in how many seconds?

Time = Distance / SpeedSpeed = 120 km/hr = (120*1000)/3600 m/s Speed = (100/3) m/s

Time = 150/(100/3) = 4.5 sec

A train running at a speed of 90 km/hr crosses a tree in 6 sec. What is its length?

Distance = speed x time Speed = 90 km/hr = (90x1000)/3600 m/sSpeed = 25 m/sLength = Distance covered = 25 * 6 = 150 m

So Length of the train = 150 m
