The train

The train passed the observer in the 20s and passed through a 1500m tunnel in 2 minutes. Calculate the speed (km/h) and train length.

Result

v =  54 km/h
l =  300 m

Solution:


v* (20/3600) = s
1500/1000 + s = v*2/60

3600s-20v = 0
3000s-100v = -4500

s = 310 = 0.3
v = 54

Calculated by our linear equations calculator.
l=s 1000=0.3 1000=300=300  m l = s \cdot \ 1000 = 0.3 \cdot \ 1000 = 300 = 300 \ \text{ m }



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
