(1) Time taken by a train x mt long in passing a signal post or a pole or a standing man = time taken by the train to cover x mt.
(2) Time taken by a train x mt long in passing a stationary object of length y mt = time taken by the train to cover x+y mt.
(3) Suppose two trains or two bodies are moving in the same direction at u kmph and v kmph such that u > v then their relative speed is uv kmph.
(4)If two trains of length x km and y km are moving in opposite directions at u kmph and v kmph,then time taken by the train to cross each other = (x+y)/(u+v) hr
(5) Suppose two trains or two bodies are moving in opposite direction at u kmph and v kmph then,their relative speed = (u+v) kmph
(6)If two train start at the same time from 2 points A & B towards each other and after crossing they take a & b hours in reaching B & A respectively then
A's speed : B's speed = (b^1/2 : a^1/2 )
