Problems on Trains Important Formulas


1. x km/hr = [x * 5/18]m/s.

 

2. x m/s = [x * 18/5] km/hr.

 

3. Time taken by a train of length l metres to pass a pole or a standing man or a signal post is equal to the time taken by the train to cover l metres.

 

4. Time taken by a train of length l metres to pass a stationary object of length b metres is the time taken by the train to cover (l + b) metres.

 

5. Suppose two trains or two bodies are moving in the same direction at u m/s and v m/s, where u>v, then their relatives speed = (u - v) m/s.

 

6. Suppose two trains or two bodies are moving in opposite directions at u m/s and v m/s, then their relative speed is = (u + v) m/s

 

7. If two trains of length a metres and b metres are moving in opposite directions at u m/s and v m/s, then the time taken by the trains to cross each other

= (a + b)/(u + v) sec.

8. If two trains of length a metres and b metres are moving in the same direciton at u m/s and v m/s, then the time taken by the faster train to cross the

slower train = (a + b)/(u - v) sec.

 

9. If tow trains (or bodies) start at the same time from points A and B towards each other and after crossing they take a and b sec in reaching B and A respectively, then
(A’s speed) : (B’s speed) = (√b : √a).
