Question

# A train $$400$$m long crosses a bridge $$500$$m long in $$90$$ sec. Find the train in km/h ?

Solution

## To cross the bridge, the distance travelled by the train $$=400\ m +500\ m =900\ m$$Time taken $$=90\ secs$$$$\therefore\,$$Speed of the train$$=\dfrac{distance}{time}$$$$=\dfrac{900}{60}$$$$=15\,m{s}^{-1}$$$$1\,m=\dfrac{1}{1000}\,km$$ and $$1\,second=\dfrac{1}{3600}hrs$$$$=15\times\dfrac{1}{1000}\times 3600$$ using $$m{s}^{-1}=\dfrac{m}{s}$$$$=15\times \dfrac{3600}{1000}$$$$=15\times \dfrac{18}{5}=3\times 18=54km\,per\,hr$$Hence the train travels at a speed of $$54\,km\,per\,hr$$Physics
