A Tale of Two Trains Problem: Just as a passenger train that you boarded a few moments before is beginning to pull out of the station, it is passed by a freight train traveling at 45 mi/h along a parallel track in the same direction that your train is headed. If your train undergoes constant acceleration, how far will you have traveled before your train passes the freight train, assuming that the freight train's speed remains constant? All that you know about your train's acceleration is that it takes 3.5 miles for the train to reach a speed of 60 mi/h, starting from rest. Solution: The blue train (upper) is our train, the green (lower) is the freight train. The diagram is the location of each train at t=0, t= ! t f and t=t f . Positions are approximate, and velocities are noted via the arrows. We are given the velocity of the freight train (Train 2) and that our train (Train 1) travels from rest with constant acceleration.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
