Test: Utilization of Electrical Energy- 3 - Question 1

### The average speed of a train is independent of:

Detailed Solution for Test: Utilization of Electrical Energy- 3 - Question 1

Average Speed: It is the mean of the speeds attained by the train from start to stop, i.e. it is defined as the ratio of the distance covered by the train between two stops to the total time of run. It is denoted with Va

Average speed = distance between stops / actual time of run

Va = D/T

Where Vis the average speed of train in kmph

D is the distance between stops in km

T is the actual time in hours

Here the total time of run does not include the duration of the stops. Hence the average speed is independent of the duration of the stops.
