Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by Total Gadha - Monday, 21 May 2007, 07:17 PM

For an MBA aspirant, a problem on time, speed and distance means solving complex situations with the help of many equations. Whether you are a C AT 2010 or 2011 aspirant, time speed and distance will give you many sleepless nights. The chapter has both easy and tough aspects to it. The easy aspect is the formula; there is only one formula- Distance = speed x time- and it is known to every student. The tough aspect of course is the application of the formula; most students apply equations to solve the problems based on this formula. Let's have a look at a typical time, speed and distance problem: Two trains start from stations A and B, respectively, towards each other at 12:00 noon. The trains take 7 hours and 13 hours, respectively, to cover the whole trip. What time do the two trains meet? Well how would you solve it? If you already started writing an equation, hold your pen for a while. There's a better method. The method owes its existence to fundamentals of ratios and proportions. Let's have a look at the formula once again:

I conclude this chapter over here itself with only one thought for you all to ponder- I did not use equations in a single question. In the next chapter I'll cover relative speed and circular motion. Till then, chew the cud over these problems. Total Gadha

I shall have to end here and leave the rest of it for my CBT Club students. I shall cover some problems based on this in the CBT Club this week.

Hi TG, Two trains start from stations A and B, respectively, towards each other at 12:00 noon. The trains take 7 hours and 13 hours, respectively, to cover the whole trip. What time do the two trains meet? I guess the answer is 4:33 PM. Plz tell if it's correct.

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by Nitya S - Tue sday, 22 May 2007, 12:44 PM Hi C hinni, As I have alre ady m e ntione d in this forum I am e x tre m e ly we e k in TSD. So I am trying to give it a short. The re is at le ast 50% probability that this m ight be wrong so le t us wait for TG or othe r frie nds to com e up with the solution. I we nt ahe ad lik e this. Le t the distance be 91 k m (LC M of 7 and 13) The n the spe e d be com e s 13 k m /hour and 7 k m /hour for A and B re spe ctive ly. Since the y are m oving towards e ach othe r the re lative spe e d will be 21 (7+13) So the tim e tak e n will be (d/s) = 91/21 = 4*(7/21) = 4 hours and 20 m inute s. So the y will m e e t at 4:20 pm TG ple ase le t us k now whe the r m y approach / solution is corre ct. Thank s, Nitya.

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by Total Gadha - Tue sday, 22 May 2007, 12:45 PM Hi Nitya, I hope that the article was use ful to you. Total Gadha

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by Total Gadha - Tue sday, 22 May 2007, 12:51 PM Hi Nitya and Kiran, The tim e s tak e n for the whole trip are 7 h and 13 h, re spe ctive ly. The re fore , the ratio of the spe e ds is 13: 7. In the sam e tim e , the trains will cove r 13/20 and 7/20 of the distance . The first train cove rs the whole distance in 7 hours. The re fore , it will cove r 13/20 of distance in (13/20) 7 hours = 91/20 hours = 273 m inute s. The y will m e e t at 4:33 Total Gadha

Hi TG sir, I have a question which i solved with my conventional method but couldn't be able to solve this with the method you have given. The question goes like this. Anwar leaves home everyday at 4 p.m to pick his son from school and returns home at 6 p.m. One day, the school was over at 4 p.m and the son started walking home from school. Anwar, unaware of this, starts from home as usual and meets his son on the way and returns home with him 15 minutes early. If the speed of Anwar is 30 km\hr, find the speed of his son. So sir could you please solve this for me.

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by chinni k iran - W e dne sday, 23 May 2007, 06:15 PM Eve n Ifound ti's coom on se nse -inte nsive than form ulas-inte sinve ..... Anwar m ust have m e t his son at 4:52.5 PM as he save d 15 m in be cz of his having walk e d. And Anwar cove rs a distance of 30/8 k m in that 7.5 m in which has be e n cove re d by his son in 52.5 m in. So His son's spe e d is 7.5/52.5 tim e s Anwar's spe e d which is 1/7(30)= 30/7 k m ph. I hope it's corre ct.

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by Sride vi S - Thursday, 24 May 2007, 10:23 AM hai chinni, can u pls e x plain how u got it as 4:52.5 PM. "Anwar m ust have m e t his son at 4:52.5 PM as he save d 15 m in be cz of his having walk e d. And Anwar cove rs a distance of 30/8 k m in that 7.5 m in which has be e n cove re d by his son in 52.5 m in. So His son's spe e d is 7.5/52.5 tim e s Anwar's spe e d which is 1/7(30)= 30/7 k m ph."

i assum e d as Anwar save s 15 m ins. So the tim e tak e n by the boy to trave l is 15 m ins and so the y will m e e t at 4:45PM. Kindly e x plain whe re i am going wrong

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by Vive k Singh - Thursday, 24 May 2007, 10:30 AM

There is one more question which i think is very good. Three cars started from the same point at the same time in three different directions. The first two cars move in a straight line in opposite directions. It is noticed that after 2 hours, all the cars are at the same distance from the starting point. If the distance between the two cars which travelled in opposite directions is 170km, how far from the second car is the third car, given that the distance between the first and the third cars is 136 km? Options are 1> 152km 2> 124km 3> 102km 4> cannot be determined

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by chinni k iran - Thursday, 24 May 2007, 11:12 AM Incide ntally I solve d it ve ry re ce ntly.....so he re is it.

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by chinni k iran - Thursday, 24 May 2007, 12:00 PM Hi sride vi, you shouldn't cnside r to and fro jurne y. for to and fro he save d 15 m in m e ans he save d only 7.5 m in for 'to' journe y na. that's why 7.5 m in. " A pe rson starts with 6/5th of his usual spe e d t1 m inute s late and re ache d his office t1 m inute s e arly. Now if he starts on tim e wiht 5/6th of his spe e d, how e arly/late by how m uch tim e in te rm s of t1, will he re ach hte office " I think ti's a good prob.

Now if he starts on tim e wiht 5/6th of his spe e d, how e arly/late by how m uch tim e in te rm s of t1, will he re ach hte office ... I got the ans as 12t1/5. he wil be late .

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by Vive k Singh - Thursday, 24 May 2007, 07:16 PM

Hi Kiran, I got the same answer. My approach is like Had he started at his normal time he would have saved 2t1 time by traveling at speed 6/5th of the normal. Then the time taken will be 5/6th of the original time. So he saved actually 1/6th of the original time. So normal time of travel will be 12t1. Now if he traveled at speed 5/6 th of the original then time taken will be 6/5th of the original that means he is taking extra 1/5th of the normal time which is 12t1. So he will be late by 12t1/5.

For Shyam to ove rtak e R am he m ust have to trave l d + 5/4 k m whe re "d" is the furthe r distance cove re d by R am . As the tim e tak e n by both of the m is sam e so spe e d is proportional to the distance cove re d. d / d + 5/4 = 5 / 10 => d = 5/4 So to cove r the distance 5/4k m tim e tak e n is 5/4 * 1/5 = 1/4 hr => 15 m in Shyam ove rtak e R am at 10:30 m in.

Two trains start from stations A and B, respectively, towards each other at 12:00 noon. The trains take 7 hours and 13 hours, respectively, to cover the whole trip. What time do the two trains meet? SOL speed of trains=d/7 and d/13 joint speed of doth the trains=d/7 + d/13 =20d/91 Total distence=d speed=20d/91 .'. time=d/(20d/91)=4.55 hr

80d/t + 80d/(t + 120) = d --> 80/t + 80/(t + 120) = 1 --> t = 120 m ins = 2 h. R e alize that the first case is distance constant case whe re as the se cond case is time constant case . It would be difficult to re late the two.

Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by Sande e p R aina - W e dne sday, 8 August 2007, 01:32 AM 5. A train after travelling 50 km from A meets with an accident and proceeds at 4/5th of the former speed and reaches B, 45 min late. Had the accident happened 20 km further on , it would have arrived 12 min sooner. Find the orginal speed and the distance.

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by priya l - Saturday, 11 August 2007, 06:49 AM Hi guys I an ne w he re .By the way i got an answe r, If we think care fully, we m ay conclude that the spe e d of the train upto 50k m are the sam e in both the case s, and also the spe e d afte r (50+20) 70 k m are the sam e in both the case s. Thus the diffe re nce in tim e 12 m in. is only due to diffe re nce in spe e d for the 20 k m journe y. Now, if the spe e d of the train is x k m /h the n = 20/ 4x /5 - 20/x =12/60 =25k m /h I hope i would be corre ct.

The buse s tak e 10 hours to re ach from Jaipur to De lhi. The re is a distance of hours have alre ady e lapse d since 6:00 am . The re fore , only 2 hours would be first lap, it is 5:00 pm and Shivk u has cove re d 90 k m . Shivk u will m e e t a bus hours to cove r 90 k m ) and it will be 9:00 am bus. The re fore , Shivk u m e e ts 4 45 k m be twe e n any two conse cutive buse s. W he n Shivk u starts, 8 le ft for the first bus to com ple te its journe y. At the e nd of Shivk u's which has still two hours to com ple te its journe y (the bus tak e s two buse s in his first lap (6:00 am to 9:00 am bus)

But ignoring all this logic, you can se e that in the se cond que stion, only the last option give s the sum of the buse s as 15. For the first que stion, just find the ratio of the highe st to lowe st re lative spe e d.

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by C he e ni Kum - Monday, 14 April 2008, 11:46 PM hi TG, i have a que ry on this que stion from the quiz on Tim e and Distance -If R oshan and Swati le ave the ir house s at 10:00, walk ing dire ctly towards e ach othe r, the y m e e t at 10:10. If R oshan le ave s his house at 10:00 and Swati le ave s he r house at 10:03, again walk ing towards e ach othe r, the y m e e t at 10:11.At what tim e will Swati re ach R oshan's house if she le ave s he r house at 10:00? m y approach--le t R oshan's spe e d be x and Swati's spe e d be y So, in the first case total distance =10(x +y) in the se cond case , R oshan trave ls for 11 m ins and Swati for 3 m ins so total distance = 11x + 8y e quating, 10(x +y)=11x +8y so x =2y total distance = 10(3y)=30y so tim e tak e n by swati is 30y/y=30 m ins so she re ache s at 10:30....... could u ple ase sugge st alte rnative approache s to the proble m thank s

Hi TG sir, Plz he lp m e solve this sum . I use d the distance constant conce pt.

A train left station A for station B at a certain speed. After 100Km it met with an accident and travelled at 4/5 of its original speed and reached station B 45mins late.Had the accident occured 50Km further on it would reach 30mins late.What is the distance between the stations A & B?
I pr oceeded in this manner .........

Soln here the difference in time is due to the 50 Km travelled in the 2nd case. let the original time taken is t. so after accident time taken is 5/4 t. so difference in time 5/4 t - t =15 mins (45 - 30) so t = 60 mins. Therefore original speed of train is 50Km/hr. But sir how will i extend this to find the distance between the stations. plz help Dip.............

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by anubhav arora - Saturday, 25 July 2009, 11:52 PM Hi, I have a sm all issue with the last que stion..C onside r the following state m e nt in the que stion.. "..but Y has to stop for 15 m in at station C which is 60 Km away from B". My point is that in the solution give n by TG, it has be e n assum e d that train Y is stopping for full 15 m in be fore it m e e ts train X. According to m e we 'll have to first ve rify whe the r Y is actually waiting for full 15 m in( which is the case he re ) or not.. To m ak e m y point cle ar..le t us say train Y stops for 15 m in at C which is 70 km from B..Now the solution give n by TG would no longe r be corre ct, as Y doe s not have to wait for full 15 m in..train X crosse s Y be fore the e nd of Y's waiting pe riod of 15 m in.. Do te ll m e if I am m issing som e thing.. Awaiting ur re ply TG, Anubhav DC E

Hi Guys ! here is another simple but tricky question ??? A starts from home for his office. He travels downhill, then on flat ground and then uphill to reach his office. It takes him 3 hrs to reach the office. On the way back home A takes 3 hrs 10 min to reach home along the same route. The speeds downhill is 60 km/hr, on flat ground is 48 km/hr and uphill is 40 km/hr. What is the distance between As home and his office? 144 km 148 km 154 km 160 km Data Insufficient Cheers !!!!!! Pallav

Re: Time, Speed and Distance Unplugged by am ar goswam i - W e dne sday, 18 Nove m be r 2009, 09:03 PM Hi Pallav, He re you go.. suppose while going from hom e to office : distance downhill = x flat distance = y uphill distance = z from the give n data it is cle ar that
