You can put this solution on YOUR website! Train T1 is 72 metres long
and is travelling at (108km/h.
T2 is 78 metres long and is travelling (72km/h).
T1 & T2 are travelling in opposite directions
so add up speed = 108+72=180 km/h
Distance = sum of lengths of trains (72+78)=150 m= 0.15km
time = d/r
1 hour = 3600 seconds
0.000833*3600= 3 seconds
Time to pass= 3 seconds
