## How to Solve Train Passes through a Pole Problems?

When a Train Passes through a Pole or Tree the formulas to find the Time Speed and Distance are given below

Suppose the Length of the Train = x mts

Speed of the Train = y km/hr

Time taken by the Train to Cross a Pole or Stationary Object = Length of the Train/Speed of the Train

= x meters/y km/hr

To Change km/hr to m/sec simply multiply with 5/18.

### Solved Examples to Calculate When Train Passes through a Pole

1. A train 200 m long is running at a uniform speed of 75 km/hr. How much time will it take to cross a pole?

Solution:

Length of the Train = 200 m

Speed of the Train = 75 km/hr

To convert it to m/sec multiply with 5/18

= 75*5/18

= 20.83 m/sec

Time taken by the train to cross the pole = Length of the Train/Speed of the Train

= 200 m/20.83 m/sec

= 9.6 sec

Therefore, Train takes 9.6 sec to cross the pole.

2. Find the time taken by a train 350 m long, running at a speed of 60 km/hr in crossing the pole?

Solution:

Length of the Train = 350 m

Speed of the Train = 60 km/hr

Time taken by the Train to cross the pole = Length of the Train/Speed of the Train

= 350m/60 km/hr

To change from km/hr to m/sec multiply with 5/18 i.e. 60*5/18 = 16.66 m/sec

= 350 m/16.66m/sec

= 21.008 sec

Thus, the train takes 21.008 sec to cross the pole.

3. A train is running at a speed of 54 km/hr. It crosses a tower in 7 seconds. Find the Length of the train?

Solution:

Speed of the Train = 54 km/hr

Time taken by train to cross tower = 7 seconds

Length of the Train = Speed * Time

= 54*(5/18)*7

= 105 m

Therefore, the Length of the Train is 105 m

4. A train is running at a speed of 140 km/hr. if it crosses a pole in just 8 seconds, what is the length of the train?

Solution:

Speed of the Train = 140 km/hr

Time taken to cross the pole = 8 seconds

Length of the Train = Speed * Time

= 140 km/hr*8

= 140*(5/18)*8

= 311.11 m

Therefore, the length of the train is 311.11 m
