Train speed

Two guns were fired from the same place at an interval of 10 minutes and 30 seconds, but a person in a train approaching the place hears second shot 10 minutes after the first. The speed of the train (in km/hr), supposing that sound travels at 340 m/s is:

Correct answer:

v =  61.2 km/h

Step-by-step explanation:

t1=(10+6030)/60=407=0.175 h t2=10/60=610.1667 h  t=t1t2=0.1750.1667=12010.0083 h v1=340 3.6=1224 km/h  t v1=t2 v  v=v1 t2t=1224 0.16670.0083=5306 km/h=61.2 km/h
