5.  A train running in 90Km/hour, having 100 metres long, crosses a train running in another track in opposite direction with speed of 54 Km per hours having 140 metres. How many seconds will take the trains to cross each other fully ?

(a) 9 seconds

(b) 6 seconds    (Ans)

(c) 8 seconds

(d) No given

Answer :  Here we want to calculate the relative speed or velocity. Since the trains are moving in opposite directions the relative speed will arrive by summing up i.e. 90 Km hr + 54 Km/hr = ie. 144 Km/hour = 40 m/secs [to convert Km/hour to metres/seconds we want to multiply the term by 5/18.]

The total distance of crossing, [i.e. length of two trains] = 100m + 140m = 240m

The time required to cross 240m by 40m/secs speed = 240/40 = 6 seconds [Conversion of metres/seconds to KM/seconds will be arrived by multiplying by 18/5.]
