### How fast do the Japan bullet trains travel?

The maximum operating speed is 320 km/h (200 mph) (on a 387.5 km section of the T?hoku Shinkansen). Test runs have reached 443 km/h (275 mph) for conventional rail in 1996, and up to a world record 581 km/h (361 mph) for maglev trains in 2003.

### A train leaves Middelburg at 09:00 and arrives in Johannesburg at 11:00 having traveled a distance of 180 km. Find the average speed of the train in m/s.

Journey time 2hrs = 2 x 60 mins = 2 x 60 x 60 seconds
Distance 180 km = 180,000 m
Average speed = 3 x 6 x 10000 / 2 x 6 x 6 x 100 m/s
= 6 x 6 x 100 x 100 / [2 x (2 x 6 x6 x100)] m/s
= 100 / 4 m/s
= 25 m/s

### One train leaves a station heading west, while another leaves two hours later travelling 15km/h faster heading east. After 6 hours the trains are 580 km apart. How fast is each train travelling?

To start out, you need to figure out what the equation for the problem is. You know a few things that should help you along the way:
• The trains are 580 km apart
• one train traveled for 6 hours
• the other train traveled for 4 hours
• one train is going 15km/h faster than the other.
Knowing these facts you can write the equation 6x+4x+60=580.

The 6 at the front is how many hours the first train traveled. the 4 is the hours the second train traveled. the 60 is (4*15) which is how much faster the second train was going. the 580 is the total distance between them.

Solve for x

10x=520
x=52

So the westbound train was going 52 km/h and the east bound train was going 67km/h.

If the train's still going the right way, up about ((5 *60)/25) km/h. Classical relativity doesn't change it much at that person's speed, since c >> 25kmph, but that's not to say quantum relativity will continue to favor the Standard Model with the information given for meeting in your OS.

### Train A and B are traveling in the same direction on parallel tracks. Train A is traveling at 100 miles per hour and Train B is traveling at 110 miles per hour. Train A passes a station at 9:25am If train...

The first thing to figure out is the amount of time between the trains is 12 minutes. That would mean for train B to pass the station at 9:37 it would have to travel 22 miles in 12 minutes. Because, traveling at 110 miles/hour in 12 minutes the train would have travel 22 miles. Shown below shows the interpolation to come up with 22 miles.

Train A had to traveled 12 minutes so, it would have been 20 miles ahead of the station. Screened below shows the interpolation to equal 20 miles.

Though this calculation of 20 miles isn't necessary for the parametric solution that is being shown. It was very helpful in my solution in successive approximation. This parametric solution's starting point is at 9:37, not 20 miles ahead.

Using successive approximation, when train A traveled 200 miles in 2 hours, and train B was only 2 miles behind train A. At that point the time varibles needed to be broke down to minutes and seconds which gave me a real accurrate answer. Both trains were side by side in 2 hours and 12 minutes, and had traveled 220 miles from the station. You wouldn't believe how far the significant bits needed to be carried out to get such an accurate number. That's what gave me the idea to substitute, and use a parametric solution. In this solution the t (aka. time) is going to be substituted for the y axis. Next, I broke miles/hour down to mile/minute because, I knew the answer was in minutes: 2 hours and 12 minutes.

110/60=1.833333 so, -20+1.833333 t and 100/60=1.6666667 so, 1.6666667 t

Now let's look at the solution from the graph. Each line represents a train.

Notice how the two lines are converging. Where the two lines meet is the exact point when the two trains are side by side.

Substituting t (aka. time) for the y axis show that at the point when the trains were side by side equals 132 minutes. Or 2 hours and 12 minutes. The distance traveled x axis=220 mile from the station.

To a point successive approximation would have been messy, and hard to follow. Somethings can only be solved by using graphs, or better solved by using graphs.

### The stopping distance d of a car after the brakes are applied varies directly as the square of the speed r. If a car traveling 40 mph car stop in 90ft, how many feet will it take the same car to stop when...

The stopping distance is proportional to square of speed.

that is 90ft proportional to 40^2 mph.

We can write as 90 = X * 40^2. ( X is a constant of proportionality) .

Which implies X = 90 / 1600 = .05625.

Assume S be the distance at which car stops when the speed is 90 mph.

S = X * 90^2. ( since X does not vary as same car is used)

=> S =.05625 * 8100 = 455.625 ft.

Thank you.
