## Length of single rail at given number of sleepers per km Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Length of single rail = (2*Number of sleepers per km/Number of rails per km)-(Density Factor)
L = (2*Ns/N)-(x)
This formula uses 4 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 sleepers per km - Number of sleepers per km is the total number of sleepers required in one km.
Number of rails per km - Number of rails per km is the total number of rails in one kilometer or 1000m.
Density Factor - Density factor is any number which when added to a length of rail, will give sleeper Density. In India x-4, 5, 6 or 7 is used for main-tracks.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
