But it possible we miss any. We appreciate if you share that with us. Your little help will help so many needy.

The problem on trains are important chapter for easily get the marks in competitive exam papers. you just remember the way of train cross the object and speed, time and distance. There are train based problem based on two object, Here we learn the problem on speed taken by train pass a pole, a man or light lamp or platform bridge. First is Train and second object is that which is crossed by the train.

**Problem on speed taken by train**

**Example 1:** A 270 meters long train passes a bridge thrice its length in 30 seconds. find the speed of the train in kms/hr.

**Answer :** 270 x 3 + 270 / 30 = 1080 / 30

36 x 18 / 5 = 129.6 km/hr

**Example 2:** A 720 meters long train cross a man standing in 60 seconds. What would be the speed of the train ?

**Answer :**S = D /T

720 / 60 = 12 m/sec.

**Example 3:**

A supar fast train 140m long crossing a long tunnel of 450m in 20 sec. What would be the speed of train ?

**Answer :** Speed = distance 1 + distance 2 / Time

140 + 450 = 590 / 20 = 29.5 m/s.

**Example 4:** A local train 150 m long passes a boy, and running at 3 km/hr in the same direction, in 10 seconds.

What would be the speed of the train ?

**Answer:** Speed of the train relative to man =150 / 10 m/sec = 15 m/sec

Convert meters to km=15 x 18 / 5 = 54 km/hr.

Let the speed of the train be x km/hr

x – 3 = 54

x = 57 km/hr.

**Example 5:**

An Spice jet covers a certain distance at a speed of 275 kmph in 5 hours. To cover the same distance in 7 / 3 hours, So it travel at a speed of:

**Answer :**

distance at a speed of 275 kmph,

Distance = ( 275 x 5 ) = 1375 km,

we know formula, Speed = Distance / Time

Speed =1375 x 3 / 7 = 4125 / 7 = 589.2 km / hr.

it travel at a speed of 589.2 km / hr.

**Example 6:**

A bus passes a distance of 750 km. in 15 hours. What would be speed of the bus ?

**Answer :** Speed = Distance / Time

Speed = 725 / 15 = 50 km./hrs.

**Example 7:**

A 150 m long train takes 30 seconds to cross a man standing on a platform, What would be the speed the of train ?

**Answer :**

We know the formula Speed = Distance / Time

So, Distance = 150 m , Time = 30 Seconds

Speed = ( 150 / 30 ) m / sec = 5 m / sec.

speed of the train is 5 m / sec.

**Example 8:** A 320 meter long mail train whose average speed of 90 Km/hr passes a platform in 40 seconds.

A boy passes the same platform in 5 minutes, Find the speed of boy in meter/sec.

**Answer :**

At first we convert Km/ht to M/sec = 90 x 5 / 18 = 25m/sec.

25 = 320 + x / 40

x = 1000 – 320

x = 680.

5 minute = 5 x 60 = 300 seconds.

So, Speed of boy = 680 / 300 = 2.27 m/sec.

**Example 9:**

A slow Local train whose length is 150 meter long and a bridge length is 550 meter to cross the bridge by local train in 50 sec, What is the speed of train to crossing a bridge ?

**Answer:**

At first we add the length of both train and bridge that is 150 + 550 = 700 meter, and we know the formula of speed = Distance / Time,

So 700 / 50 = 14 meter / sec.

**Example 10:**

A train 165 meters long crosses a electric post in 5 seconds. The speed of the trains in km /hr is:

**Answer :**

We know the formula Speed = Distance / Time

So, Distance = 165 m, Time = 5 Seconds

Speed = ( 165 / 5 ) m / sec = 33 m / sec.

Convert m / sec into km / hr ( 18 / 5) km /hr

33 x 18 / 5 = 594 / 5 = 118.8 km / hr

speed of the train is 118.8 km / hr.

**Example 11:**

A boy is standing on a railway bridge and which is 150 m long. He find that a train passes the bridge in 40 seconds but the train himself in 10 sec, Find the length of the train and speed.

**Answer:**

First we find the length of train, the we assume that length of train be L meters.

than, L / 10 = L + 150 / 40 = 40 L = 10L + 1500,

so, L = 50 meter. and now speed of train is D / T = 50 / 10 = 5 m / sec. and now convert it into 5 x 18 / 5 = 18 Km / hr.

So speed of train is 18 Km / hr.
