Problems on Trains Questions Answers

1. 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.
 10 seconds
 12 seconds
 14 seconds
 16 seconds
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option B
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 =
\begin{aligned}
\frac{Distance}{Speed} \\
= \frac{100}{\frac{25}{3}} \\
= 100* \frac{3}{25} = 12 sec \\
\end{aligned} 
2. A train is moving at a speed of 132 km/hour. If the length of the train is 110 meters, how long will it take to cross a railway platform 165 meters long.
 7 second
 7.5 second
 8 second
 8.5 second
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option B
Explanation:
As we need to calculate answer in seconds, so first convert speed into meter/sec.
we know 1 km/hr = 1*(5/18) m/sec
So, Speed = 132* (5/18) = 110/3 m/sec
Distance need to be covered in passing the platform =
Length of train + length of platform = 110 + 165
= 275 meters
Time = Distance/Speed
\begin{aligned}
=> Time = 275* \frac{3}{110} = \frac{15}{2} \\
= 7.5 seconds
\end{aligned} 
3. In what time will a train 100 meters long cross an electric pole, if its speed is 144 km/hr
 5 seconds
 4.5 seconds
 3 seconds
 2.5 seconds
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
First convert speed into m/sec
Speed = 144*(5/18) = 40 m/sec
Time = Distance/speed
= 100/40 = 2.5 seconds 
4. 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 ?
 15 seconds
 12.1 seconds
 10 seconds
 8.1 seconds
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option B
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 
5. 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.
 20 seconds
 30 seconds
 40 seconds
 50 seconds
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option C
Explanation:
Speed = 45 Km/hr = 45*(5/18) m/sec
= 25/2 m/sec
Total distance = 360+140 = 500 meter
Time = Distance/speed
\begin{aligned}
= 500*\frac{2}{25} = 40 seconds
\end{aligned} 
6. A train running at the speed of 60 km/hr crosses a pole in 9 seconds. Find the length of the train.
 150 meter
 145 meter
 140 meter
 135 meter
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option A
Explanation:
Speed = 60*(5/18) m/sec = 50/3 m/sec
Length of Train(Distance) = Speed * Time
\begin{aligned}
= \frac{50}{3}*9 = 150 meter
\end{aligned} 
7. Length of train is 130 meters and speed of train is 45 km/hour. This train can pass a bridge in 30 seconds, then find the length of the bridge.
 230 meters
 235 meters
 240 meters
 245 meters
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
Let the length of bridge is X [as always we do :)]
Speed of train is = 45*(5/18) m/sec = 25/2 m/sec
Time = 30 seconds
Total distance = 130+x
We know Speed = distance/time
so,
\begin{aligned}
\frac{130+x}{30} = \frac{25}{2} \\
=> 2(130+x) = 750 \\
x = 245 \text{ meters}
\end{aligned}
So length of the bridge is 245 meters
