NUMERICAL PROBLEM BASED ON MOTION WITH UNIFORM ACCELERATION

Asked by  | 1st Dec, 2008, 05:40: PM

Expert Answer:

the velocity of train 1 = 72km/h = 20m/s

the velocity of train 2 = 90km/h = 25m/s

The distance between them = 1000m.If the applied brakes is -1m/s2 .

Then for the first train

V2 –u2 = 2as

v=0:         S = 20m

Similarly for the second train S = 25m.

After travelling the respective distances the distance still between them is 1000 -(20+25) >0 implies the trains would not collide.
