Freight Station

Freight Station
How many cars are there in a long freight train if it takes the entire train 2 min to pass a station as it…?


Here’s the rest…as it travels 40 mi per hour? Each car is 50 ft long. There are 5,280 ft in a mile.

This is a chemistry factor problem. If you can help me please do and show me how to work it out. Thanks.

40 miles/hour x 1 hour/60 min = .667 miles/min
-> this converts miles per hour to miles per minute

.667 miles/min x 2 min = 1.334 miles
-> this tells you how many miles of cars passed you in two minutes

1.33 miles x 5280 ft/mile x 1 car/ 50 ft = 141 cars
-> this converts miles of cars to feet of cars and then to number of cars.
