# Train Passes the Tunnel

80.0K Views

A mile-long train is moving at sixty miles an hour when it reaches a mile-long tunnel. How long does it take the entire train to pass through the tunnel?

SherlockHolmes Expert Asked on 2nd January 2022 in

Train is travelling at 60 miles/hour. Both the length of train and tunnel is same – 1 mile.

Train with its front end will reach the end of tunnel in 1 minute.. However, tail end has just entered the tunnel.

Hence for the complete train to exit the tunnel, it will take 2 minutes.
