Two trains

Through the bridge, long l = 240m, the train passes through the constant speed at time t1 = 21s. A train running along the traffic lights at the edge of the bridge passes the same speed at t2 = 9s.

a) What speed v did the train go?
b) How long did it take for a train driver to cross the bridge?
c) What is the L train length?
d) How long will it take for a train to overtake in the same direction with the same length but half the speed?
e) How long will it take for a train to overtake in the opposite direction with the same length but half the speed?

Result

v =  20 m/s
L =  180 m
t3 =  12 s
t4 =  36 s
t5 =  12 s

Solution:

l=240 m t1=21 s t2=9 s   L=9 v  L+240=21 v    L9v=0  L21v=240    L=180  v=20 =20  m/s l = 240 \ m \ \\ t_{ 1 } = 21 \ s \ \\ t_{ 2 } = 9 \ s \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ L = 9 \cdot \ v \ \\ \ \\ L+240 = 21 \cdot \ v \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ L-9v = 0 \ \\ \ \\ L-21v = -240 \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ L = 180 \ \\ \ \\ v = 20 \ \\ = 20 \ \text { m/s }
L=180=180  m L = 180 = 180 \ \text { m }
t3=l/v=240/20=12=12  s t_{ 3 } = l/v = 240/20 = 12 = 12 \ \text { s }
t4=2 Lvv/2=2 1802020/2=36=36  s t_{ 4 } = \dfrac{ 2 \cdot \ L }{ v-v/2 } = \dfrac{ 2 \cdot \ 180 }{ 20-20/2 } = 36 = 36 \ \text { s }
t5=2 Lv+v/2=2 18020+20/2=12=12  s t_{ 5 } = \dfrac{ 2 \cdot \ L }{ v+v/2 } = \dfrac{ 2 \cdot \ 180 }{ 20+20/2 } = 12 = 12 \ \text { s }
