Length of single rail at given number of rails per km Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Length of single rail = (1000/Number of rails per km)*2
L = (1000/N)*2
This formula uses 2 Variables
Variables Used
Length of single rail - (Measured in Meter) - Length of Single Rail Indian Railways has standardized a rail length of 13 m (previously 12.8 m) for broad gauge and 12 m (previously 11.8 m) for MG and NG tracks.
Number of rails per km - Number of rails per km is the total number of rails in one kilometer or 1000m.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Number of rails per km: 154 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
L = (1000/N)*2 --> (1000/154)*2
