due to inertia ball will have velocity same a train i.e.80 kmph eastwards and due to throwing westwards at 140 kmph it will have 140 kmph velocity west wards so taking components ball will have 60 kmph westwards

taking east as +ve

Given :

velocity of train (say u )= 80 i

and velocity of ball be v

case 1:

the velocity of ball given is wrt train..

then velocity of ball = -140 i wrt train.

velocity of ball wrt train = v - u

thrfr,

-140 = v - 80

v = -60 i

thrfr the velocity of ball wrt ground = 60 km/hr westward..
