## Resistance Due to Gradients Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Resistance due to gradients = Weight of Train*(Slope Percentage/100)
Rg = w*(m/100)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Resistance due to gradients - Resistance due to gradients is considered because whenever a train has to move along the rising gradient,first it has to experience and overcome resistance due to rising gradient.
Weight of Train - (Measured in Tonne) - Weight of Train is representing the amount of matter in a object(train).Here it is given in tonnes.
Slope Percentage - Slope Percentage /Gradient is the steepness of line and it is defined as the ratio of vertical change to the horizontal change between any two distinct points on a line.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Weight of Train: 1300 Tonne --> 1300 Tonne No Conversion Required
Slope Percentage: 2 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Rg = w*(m/100) --> 1300*(2/100)
Evaluating ... ...
Rg = 26
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
26 --> No Conversion Required
26 <-- Resistance due to gradients

## Resistance Due to Gradients Formula

Resistance due to gradients = Weight of Train*(Slope Percentage/100)
Rg = w*(m/100)

## Resistance in Railway Engineering

Train Resistance is the force required to move a train and it is the sum of rolling resistance on tangent level track,grade resistance and curve resistance of the locomotives.
