### The speed of a passenger train is 16mph faster than the speed of a freight train The passenger train travels 250miles in the same time it takes the freight train to travel 170 miles find the speed o?

Passenger train speed + 50 mph Freight train speed = 34mph V(passenger) = V(freight) + 16mph Vp x Time = 250mi. Vf x Time = 170mi. therefore... a. [Vf + 16] x T = 250 b. Vf x T = 170 Subtract b. from a. 16T = 80 Time = 5 hours Vp = 250/5 = 50 mph Vf = 170/5 = 34 mph

### Is light slower in air or water or a vacuum and Why?
