A train of length 90 m was traveling at a speed of 170 km/h. It passed by another train of length 205 m. Find the time required for train to completely pass train , given that train is moving with a speed of 152 km/h in the same direction as train .
A car is moving on a straight road at 84 km/h, and in the opposite direction, a motorbike is moving at 45 km/h. Suppose that the direction of the car is positive. Find the velocity of the motorbike relative to the car.
Two cars and are moving at 142 km/h and 19 km/h in opposite directions. Given that car is moving in the positive direction, determine its relative velocity with respect to .
