    A train of length 200 m travelling at 30 m/s overtakes another train of length 300 m travelling at 20 m/s. The time taken by the first train to pass the second is s = 200 m v _1= 30 m/s v_ 2 = 20 m/s

    easy ; \[\large{\frac{s_{total}}{u+v} = \frac{200+300}{20+30}=\frac{500}{50} =10?}\]

    look they have a relative velocity of v=30-20 m/s rigth?

    \[\large{\frac{s_1+s_2}{v_1 - v_2}=\frac{300+200}{30-20}=\frac{500}{10}=50 \textbf{ms^{-1}}}\]

    imagine now in the moment the front of the train reach the other it must travel 300 m with this velocity

    now all train must pass throught other with the same velocity(10m/2),so the back part must travel 200 m
