A train travels 700 metres in 35 seconds. What is its speed in km/h?
Distance = 700 m
Time taken = 35 sec
A racing car covered 600 km in 3 hours 20 minutes. Find its speed in metre per second. How much distance will the car cover in 50 sec?
Distance covered = 600 km
Time taken = 3 hr 20 min
= Speed x Time
= 50 x 50 m = 2500 m or 2.50 km
Rohit goes 350 km in 5 hours. Find :
(i) his speed
(ii) the distance covered by Rohit in 6.2 hours
(iii) the time taken by him to cover 210 km.
Distance covered = 350 km
Time taken = 5 hours
A boy drives his scooter with a uniform speed of 45 km/h. Find :
(i) the distance covered by him in 1 hour 20 min.
(ii) the time taken by him to cover 108 km.
(iii) the time taken to cover 900 m.
Speed of the scooter = 45 km/h
I travel a distance of 10 km and come back in 2 hours. What is my speed?
Total distance covered = 10 km + 10 km = 20 km
A man walks a distance of 5 km in 2 hours. Then he goes in a bus to a nearby town, which is 40 km, in further 2 hours. From there, he goes to his office in an autorickshaw, a distance of 5 km, in hour. What was his average speed during the whole journey?
Distance of 5 km travelled on foot in 2 hours
Distance of 40 km travelled by bus in 2 hours
Distance of 5 km travelled by Rickshaw in hour
Total distance covered = 5 + 40 + 5 = 50 km
Jagan went to another town such that he covered 240 km by a car going at 60 kmh-1. Then he covered 80 km by a train, going at 100 kmh-1 and the rest 200 km, he covered by a bus, going at 50 kmh-1. What was his average speed during the whole journey?
Distance covered 240 km by car with speed 60 km/h
Distance covered 80 km by train with speed 100 km/h
and rest distance covered 200 km by bus with speed 50 km/h
Total distance covered = (240 + 80 + 200) km = 520 km
The speed of sound in air is about 330 ms-1. Express this speed in kmh-1. How long will the sound take to travel 99 km?
Speed of sound in air = 330 m/sec
A train 180 m long is running at a speed of 90 km/h. How long will it take to pass a railway signal?
Distance = 180 m
Speed = 90 km/h
A train whose length is 150 m, passes a telegraph pole in 10 sec. Find the speed of the train in km/h.
Distance = 150 m
Time taken = 10 sec
A train 120 m long passes a railway platform 160 m long in 14 sec. How long will it take to pass another platform which is 100 m long?
Distance covered = 120 m + 160 m = 280 m
Time taken = 14 seconds
Mr. Amit can walk 8 km in 1 hour 20 minutes.
(a) How far does he go in :
(i) 10 minutes ?
(ii) 30 seconds ?
(b) How long will it take him to walk :
(i) 2500 m ?
(ii) 6.5 km ?
Amit walks 8 km in 1 hour 20 min
Which is greater : a speed of 45 km/h or a speed of 12.25 m/sec?
How much is the distance travelled by each in 2 seconds?
First speed = 45 km/h
Second = 12.25 m/sec
A and B start from the same point and at the same time with speeds 15 km/h and 12 km/h respectively, find the distance between A and B after 6 hours if both move in :
(i) same direction
(ii) the opposite directions.
A’s speed = 15 km/h
B’s speed = 12 km/h
Distance covered by A in 6 hours = 15 x 6 = 90 km
and Distance covered by B in 6 hours = 12 x 6 = 72 km
(i) Distance between A and B when they move in the same direction = 90 – 72 = 18 km
(ii) Distance between A and B, when they move in the opposite directions = 90 + 72 = 162 km
A and B start from the same place, in the same direction and at the same time with speeds 6 km/h and 2 m/sec respectively. After 5 hours who will be ahead and by how much?
A’s speed = 6 km/h
B’s speed = 2 m/sec
Distance covered by A in 5 hours = 6 x 5 = 30 km
and distance covered by B in 5 hours = 5 x 60 x 60 x 2 m = 36000 m
= = 36 km
B will be ahead and 36 – 30 = 6 km ahead.
Mohit covers a certain distance in 6 hrs by his scooter at a speed of 40 kmh-1.
(i) Find the time taken by Manjoor to cover the same distance by his car at the speed of 60 kmh-1.
(ii) Find the speed of Joseph, if he takes 8 hrs to complete the same distance.
Mohit’s speed = 40 km/h or kmh-1
Distance covered in = 6 hours
Distance = 40 x 6 = 240 km
(i) Manjoor car’s speed = 60 kmh-1
He will cover the distance of 240 km in = = 4 hours
(ii) Joseph covered that distance in 8 hours
His speed = = 30 kmh-1
A boy swims 200 m in still water and then returns back to the point of start in total 10 minutes. Find the speed of his swim in
