Q:

A train with 120 wagons crosses Arun who is going in the same direction, in 36 seconds. It travels for half an hour from the time it starts overtaking the Arun ( he is riding on the horse) before it starts overtaking the Sriram( who is also riding on his horse) coming from the opposite direction in 24 seconds. In how much time (in seconds) after the train has crossed the Sriram do the Arun meets to Sriram?

A) 3560 sec B) 3600 sec
C) 3576 sec D) can't be determined

Answer:   C) 3576 sec



Explanation:

Let the length of the train be L metres and speeds of the train Arun and Sriram be R, A and S respectively, then 

       LR-A=36 ---------- (i) 

and LR+K=24 ---------(ii)

 

From eq.(i) and (ii)

              3(R - A ) = 2 (R + K) 

  R = 3A + 2K 

 

In 30 minutes (i.e 1800 seconds), the train covers 1800R (distance) but the Arun also covers 1800 A (distance) in the same time. Therefore distance between Arun and Sriram, when the train has just crossed Sriram

               = 1800 ( R - A) - 24 ( A + K)

 

 Time required = 1800(R-A)-24(A+K)(A+K)

 

= (3600 - 24) = 3576 s                            

Q:

With an average speed of 40 km/hr, a train reaches its destination in time. If it goes with an average speed of 35 km/hr, it is late by 15 minutes. Find the length of the total journey?

A) 70 kms B) 60 kms
C) 45 kms D) 30 kms
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 70 kms

Explanation:

Let the time taken by train be 't' hrs.

Then,

40t = 35t + 1560

40t = 35t + 35/4

t = 7/4 hrs

Therefore, Required length of the total journey d = s x t

= 40 x 7/4

= 70 kms.

Q:

Ashwin fires two bullets from the same place at an interval of 15 minutes but Rahul sitting in a bus approaching the place hears the second sound 14 minutes 30 seconds after the first. If sound travels at the speed of 330 meter per second, what is the approximate speed of bus?

A) 330/29 m/s B) 330 x 30 m/s
C) 330/14 m/s D) 330/900 m/s
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 330/29 m/s

Explanation:

Second gun shot take 30 sec to reach rahul imples distance between two.

given speed of sound = 330 m/s

Now, distance = 330 m/s x 30 sec 

 

Hence, speed of the bus = d/t = 330x30/(14x60 + 30) = 330/29 m/s.

Q:

Important Time and Distance formulas with examples.

Answer

1. How to find Speed(s) if distance(d) & time(t) is given:


 


 Speed (S) = Distance (D)Time (T)  


 


Ex: Find speed if a person travels 4 kms in 2 hrs?


Speed = D/T = 4/2 = 2 kmph.


 


2.  Similarly, we can find distance (d)  if speed (s) & time (t) is given by


 


Distance (D) = Speed (S) x Time (T)


 


Ex : Find distance if a person with a speed of 2 kmph in 2 hrs?


Distance D = S X T = 2 x 2 = 4 kms. 


 


3.  Similarly, we can find time (t) if speed (s) &  distance (d) is given by


 


Time (T) = Distance (D)Speed (S)


 


Ex : Find in what time a person travels 4 kms with a speed of 2 kmph?


Time T = D/S = 4/2 = 2 hrs.


 


4. How to convert  km/hr into m/sec :


 


P km/hr = P x 518 m/sec


 


Ex : Convert 36 kmph into m/sec?


36 kmph = 36 x 5/18 = 10 m/sec 


 


5. How to convert  m/sec into km/hr :


 


P m/sec = P x 185 kmph.


 


Ex : Convert 10 m/sec into km/hr?


10 m/sec = 10 x 18/5 = 36 kmph.


 


6.  If the ratio of the speeds of A and B is a:b, then the ratio of the times taken by them to cover the same distance is b : a.


 


7.  Suppose a man covers a certain distance at x km/ hr and an equal distance at y km/hr . Then, the average speed during the whole journey is 2xyx+y km/hr.

Q:

Two trains are running with speeds 30 kmph and 58 kmph respectively in the same direction. A man in the slower train passes the faster train in 18 seconds. Find the length of the faster train?

A) 105 mts B) 115 mts
C) 120 mts D) 140 mts
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 140 mts

Explanation:

Speeds of two trains = 30 kmph and 58 kmph

=> Relative speed = 58 - 30 = 28 kmph = 28 x 5/18 m/s = 70/9 m/s

Given a man takes time to cross length of faster train = 18 sec

 

Now, required Length of faster train = speed x time = 70/9  x  18 = 140 mts.

Q:

A train-A passes a stationary train B and a pole in 24 sec and 9 sec respectively. If the speed of train A is 48 kmph, what is the length of train B?

A) 200 mts B) 180 mts
C) 160 mts D) 145 mts
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 200 mts

Explanation:

Length of train A = 48 x 9 x 5/18 = 120 mts

Length of train B = 48 x 24 x 5/18 - 120

=> 320 - 120 = 200 mts.

Q:

Tilak rides on a cycle to a place at speed of 22 kmph and comes back at a speed of 20 kmph. If the time taken by him in the second case is 36 min. more than that of the first case, what is the total distance travelled by him (in km)?

A) 132 km B) 264 km
C) 134 km D) 236 km
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 264 km

Explanation:

Let the distance travelled by Tilak in first case or second case = d kms

Now, from the given data,

d/20 = d/22 + 36 min

=> d/20 = d/22 + 3/5 hrs

=> d = 132 km.

 

Hence, the total distance travelled by him = d + d = 132 + 132 = 264 kms.

Q:

A train covers 180 km distance in 5 hours. Another train covers the same distance in 1 hour less. What is the difference in the distances covered by these trains in one hour if they are moving in the same direction?

A) 15 kms B) 9 kms
C) 6 kms D) 18 kms
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 9 kms

Explanation:

The first train covers 180 kms in 5 hrs

=> Speed = 180/5 = 36 kmph

Now the second train covers the same distance in 1 hour less than the first train => 4 hrs

=> Speed of the second train = 180/4 = 45 kmph

Now, required difference in distance in 1 hour = 45 - 36 = 9 kms.

Q:

Chennai express left Hyderabad for Chennai at 14 : 30 hours, travelling at a speed of 60 kmph and Charminar Express left Hyderabad for Chennai on the same day at 16 : 30 hours, travelling at a speed of 80 kmph. How far away from Hyderabad will the two trains meet? 

A) 360 kms B) 480 kms
C) 520 kms D) 240 kms
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 480 kms

Explanation:

Now, the distance covered by Chennai express in 2 hrs = 60 x 2 = 120 kms

Let the Charminar Express takes 't' hrs to catch Chennai express

=> 80 x t = 60 x (2 + t)

=> 80 t = 120 + 60t

=> t = 6 hrs

 

Therefore, the distance away from Hyderabad the two trains meet = 80 x 6 = 480 kms.
