Trains A and B

    Q.26: Two trains A and B are 100 m and 150 m long and are moving at one another at 54 Km/hr and 36 Km/hr respectively. Arun is sitting on coach B1 of train A. Calculate the time taken by Arun to completely cross Train B.
    1. 10 s
    2. 6 s
    3. 4 s
    4. 8 s

 

  • Correct Answer
    Choice B.6 s

Detailed Solution

Speed of A = = 15 m/s

Speed of B = = 10 m/s

Relative speed = S1 + S2 = 15 + 10 m/s = 25 m/s

The length that needs to be crossed = length of train B = 150 m. Therefore time taken = = 6s.

What is the time taken for trains to completely cross each other? The length that needs to be crossed = 100 + 150 = 250 m. Time taken = = 10 s.

Correct Answer: 6 s
