Train Passes through a Pole

When the train passes through a pole or tower or light-post or tree or a stationary object

If length of train = x meters and speed of the train = y km/hr, then time taken by the train to pass the stationary object = length of the train/speed of the train = x meters/y km/hr.


Note: Change km/hr into m/sec.


Solved examples to calculate when the train passes through a pole or a stationary object.

1. A train 150 m long is running at a uniform speed of 54 km/hr. How much time will it take to cross a pole?

Solution:            

Speed of train = 54 km/hr

                    = 54 × 5/18 m/sec

                    = 15 m/sec

Length of the train = 150 meters

Therefore, time taken by the train to cross a pole = length of train/speed of train

                                                                   = 150/15 sec

                                                                   = 10 sec

Thus, train takes 10 seconds to cross the pole.


2. Find the time taken by a train 300 m long, running at a speed of 54 km/hr in crossing the pole.

Solution:           

Length of the train = 300 m

Speed of the train = 54 km/hr

                         = 54 × 5/18 m/sec

                         = 15 m/sec

Therefore, time taken by the train to cross the pole = 300 m/15 m/sec

      = 20 seconds.


3. A train is running at a speed of 45 km/hr. It crosses a tower in 8 seconds. Find the length of the train.

Solution:            

Speed of train = 45 km/hr

                    = 45 × 5/18 m/sec

                    = 25/2 m/sec

Time takes to cross the tower = 8 seconds

Length of the train = speed × time

                          = 25/2 × 8 m

                          = 100 m


4. A train is running at a speed of 126 km/hr. if it crosses a pole in just 7 second, what is the length of the train?

Solution:           

Speed of the train = 126 km/hr

Speed of the train = 126 × 5/18 m/sec = 35 m/sec

Time taken by the train to cross the pole = 7 seconds

Therefore, length of the train = 35 m/sec × 7 sec = 245 m
