Q:

A train travelling at 48 kmph crosses another train, having half its length and travelling in opposite direction at 42 kmph, in 12 sec. It also covers a bridge in 45 sec. Find the length of the bridge ?

A) 250 mts B) 400 mts
C) 320 mts D) 390 mts

Answer:   B) 400 mts



Explanation:

Let the length of the 1st train = L mts

Speed of 1st train = 48 kmph

Now the length of the 2nd train = L/2 mts

Speed of 2nd train = 42 kmph

Let the length of the bridge = D mts

Distance = L + L/2 = 3L/2

Relative speed = 48 + 42 = 90 kmph = 90 x 5/18 = 25 m/s(opposite)

Time = 12 sec

=> 3L/2x25 = 12

=> L = 200 mts

Now it covers the bridge in 45 sec

=> distance = D + 200

Time = 45 sec

Speed = 48 x5/18 = 40/3 m/s

=> D + 200/(40/3) = 45

=> D = 600 - 200 = 400 mts

Hence, the length of the bridge = 400 mts.
