Visulize: Pen and Train

Before going into Trains concept, try to visulize following. (ofcourse technically incorrect but for
concept clarity)
You must have seen the advertizement of a ballpen Flair Writometer. They claim it can write
for 2,500 metres and even provide a marking scale on the ballpen refill to measure the
distance! See the photo

(http://img543.imageshack.us/i/flairwritormeterpen.jpg/)

So Youre standing on a Railway platform, holding that writometer pen in your hand, pointing it
straight towards the upcoming trains side, like this photo

(http://img338.imageshack.us/i/trainconceptvisual.png/)
The train passes, and your pen makes a straight line on the entire body of this train.
Now you open the pens refill and check the markings, obviously few mili-litres of ink is used and
marking would show that youve drawn a line of 200 meters.
Meaning length of this train is 200 m.

At the same time, your friend was sitting in the window seat of the same railway and he too held
a writometer pen in his hand pointing it out of the window and towards the platform.So as the
train passed, his pen also drew a straight line on the entire platform. Later he checks the refill of
his pen: it drew a line of 1000 meters.
Meaning length of this railway platform is 1000 m.
so what is the total distance or length of lines drawn by the two pens?
200m of train + 1000m of platform = 1200m.
Now questions

A railway train running at the speed of 20 meter per

second, crosses a man in 10 seconds. What is the length of
the train?

For all the problems about train, boats, cars, scooters, men required to complete a job, tata
nano and kingfisher airplane, in short TSDW (time,speed, distance, work) you need to remember
only one STD formula
ST=D
speed (s) x time (t) = distance (d)
Back to the question, what is given?
Visualise the situation: you are the man, holding the writometer pen and the train crossed you
in 10 seconds. What is the distance of the line drawn by your pen on the body of the train?

Speed (s)= 20 m/s (given)

Time (t)= 10 seconds (given)
so
sxt=d
20 x 10=200 m.
final answer: length of the train is 200 m.

Alternatives:
Instead of man, they can rephrase and ask: Train crossed a Tree, Telephone-pole, Tiger,
Kalmadi, Raja.. The concept remains the same. Everybody is holding a pen.

Question: a train running at the speed of 20 m/s, crosses a

railway platform in 20 seconds. If the length of the train is
100 m, what is the length of this railway platform?

So in this case, you were standing on a platform holding a blue pen and I am sitting in the
railway also holding a purple pen.
What is the total length of lines drawn by both of us?

(http://img805.imageshack.us/i/caseonetrainoneplatform.png/)
Total Length (or distance)= Your blue pen drew 100 m line + My purple pen drew (x) m line.
: The total of blue and purple color line in above photo
So total distance covered by the train is (100+x)
Now ,
speed is given: 20m/s
time is also given: 20 seconds
So apply the STD formula
sxt=D
20ms x 20 seconds = (100+x)
400m = 100+x
x=400-100

x=300m
Final answer: length of this platform is 300 metres.
Alternative: instead of railway platform, they can use the word Bridge, Tunnel but the principle
remains the same.

Case3: two trains crossing each other

Two trains are coming from opposite directions. Both of them are running at the same
speed 20 meter per second.
It takes 20 seconds for them to completely cross each other. If the length of first train is 90 m,
what is the length of the second train?
Visualise: you are holding a pen sitting in first train, I am holding a pen sitting in the second.
The total length of line drawn is 90+x m
Since both of the trains are moving, and moving in opposite directions. Meaning it will take less
time to draw these lines.
Hence
Final speed (s)
= speed of first train+ speed of second train.
= 20+20
= 40 m/s
Now it can be solved just like the case #2.
In the case #1 and #2, Man and Platform were stationary (unmoving) objects so their speed was
zero, hence we took trains speed as our final speed. But here second train is also moving so
weve to consider it.

Alternative:
same question, but instead of two trains , it is one man riding on a bike and another train
coming from the opposite direction.
Heres the length of length of line
=Line drawn on Train + Line drawn on Bike
= 90m +zero meter. (because length of bike is negligible, we take it zero)
So Distance (d)= 90.
but for the speed we have to add
=Train + Bike
=20+20
S=40 m/s
After that, principle remains the same as Case #3

Unit conversions
It is essential that before applying the STD formula, all the unit is must be in the same system,
else you will get incorrect answer.
and they will give that incorrect answer in one of the four options [a/b/c/d] so you will
confidently tick it but end up loosing in negative marking.
So in the STD formula. Everything must be
either in meter,second,
or in kilometer, hour.

Remember

1 km per hour = 5/18 meter per second.

How did we derive this?
1 kilometer per hour
=1000 meters per 60 minutes
=1000 meters per (6060) seconds
=1000 meters per 3600 seconds
=10 meters per 36 seconds (cut the zeros)
=5 meters per 18 seconds. (half of 10 and 36)
Meaning
if a train is running a 36 kms per hour then, its speed in meter per second is:
1 kmph = 5/18 ms
36 kmph= 36x (5/18) = 10 m/s.
If the reverse is asked, (10 m/s then how much in kmph?),
simply multiply with reverse 18/5, because
5/18 ms = 1 kmph
1 ms= 18/5 kmph
10 ms= 10 x (18/5) kmph = 36 kmph.

I too have a doubt on the case 3 problem. I have two queries when I go
through problem on Trains.
1. The problem is A man is standing on a railway bridge which is 180 m
long. He finds that a train crosses the bridge in 20 sec but himself in 8
sec. Find the length of the train and its speed.
Here, when calculating the speed of the train, it was mentioned that
120/8. Y 8 alone. why the 20 sec is not there instead of 8?
2. A train 150m long is running with a speed of 68kmph. In what time will
it pass a man who is running at 8kmph in the same direction in which the
train is going?
Please guide me in these two problems.

Jacob Black

Ramya,
1) 120/8 because as compare to the train or plateform a man,
telephone piller or such small items wont matter, hence for
calculating speed youve seen 120/8
2) In this case you need to find the relative speed, when a man
running in the same direction the train is going the relative speed
will be the difference of both, i.e.
Relative Speed= 68-8 = 60KMPH = 60*5/18 = 50/3 Mtr/Sec
as you know S=D/T or T=D/S => 150/(50/3)= (150*3)/50 = 9 Second

Mrunal (http://mrunal.org)

if speed of train is s and length of train is d

when crossing pole
s x 15=d
when crossing platform
s x 25 =(d+100)
divide eq.1 by 2, s will cancel and you get value of d.

ans is 150 metre
as speed = distance of train/time to cross pole and also
speed = (distance of train+platform distance)/time to cross
the pole.
So,d/15=(d+100)/25

This involves the concept of relative speed:
let the speed of the bus be x m/s
speed of the car = 68km/hr (or) 170/9 m/s
in 10s the car covers a distance of 100m(40 + 60) at a speed of
(170/9 x)m/s
distance = speed*time
100 = (170/9 -x) *10
x = 80/9 m/s
now convert it to km/hr which is 32 km/hr

V1/V2=15/10=3/2(3)
Time taken by two trains to cross each other is :

train passes platform 45sec. so time also given, we have to find
speed of train in km/hr?
speed =distance/time
