Time Distance

A train 280 m long is moving at a speed of 60 kmph. What is the time taken by the train to cross a platform 220 m long?

  1. 45 s
  2. 40 s
  3. 35 s
  4. 30 s

Solution

Total distance = length of train + length of platform

d = 280 m + 220 m = 500 m

Speed, s = 60 km/h = 60*5/18 m/s = 50/3 m/s

Time, t = d/s = 30 s

Correct option is D.
