How many cars can pass thru a road in time t ?

  1. Mar 31, 2013 #1
    Say cars are waiting on the lights to turn green.
    how many cars of dimension l,b can pass thru a road of width d in time t ?
    Another parameter can speed of the car s, also shape of the road whether its straight or curved
    I need a formula.
    I'm rusty with maths. Not sure if this is easy or tough to calculate.

    You have to show some work on your own so we can see what you do/do not know how to do. Just asking for the answer is not how this forum works.
