Question 47 If the train has travelled a distance of 500 km, then the total cost of running the train is given by function: (a) 15/16 𝑣+600000/𝒱 (b) 375/4 𝑣+600000/𝒱 (c) 15/16 𝑣^2+150000/𝒱 (d) 3/16 𝑣+6000/𝒱
Given that
If the fuel costs ₹ 48 per hour at speed 16 km per hour and the fixed charges to run the train amount to ₹ 1200 per hour.
Now,
Speed of train = 𝒗 km/hr
Thus,
Time taken to cover 500 km = 𝐷𝑖𝑠𝑡𝑎𝑛𝑐𝑒/𝑆𝑝𝑒𝑒𝑑
= 𝟓𝟎𝟎/𝒗 hours
Now,
Total cost = Fixed Charges + Running Charges
Fixed Charges
Given that Fixed charges to run the train amount to ₹ 1200 per hour.
Thus,
Fixed Charges for 1 hour = Rs 1200
Fixed Charges for 𝟓𝟎𝟎/𝒗 hours = Rs 1200 × 500/𝑣
= Rs 𝟔𝟎𝟎𝟎𝟎𝟎/𝒗
Running Charges
Given that fuel costs ₹ 48 per hour at speed 16 km per hour
From previous question
Fuel cost per hour = k × (Speed of train)2
= 𝟑/𝟏𝟔 𝒗^𝟐
Now,
Fuel cost for for 𝟓𝟎𝟎/𝒗 hours = Rs 𝟑/𝟏𝟔 𝒗^𝟐 × 500/𝑣
= Rs 𝟑𝟕𝟓/𝟒 𝒗
Thus,
Total cost = Fixed Charges + Running Charges
= Rs 𝟑𝟕𝟓/𝟒 𝒗 + 𝟔𝟎𝟎𝟎𝟎𝟎/𝒗
So, the correct answer is (b)
