Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Jeff J. on Friday, September 16, 2011 at 2:25pm.

One can get a good idea of how deep a well is, for example, by dropping a rock and listening to how long it take to hear the rock as it hits the bottom. Suppose a rock was dropped into a well that was 410 meters deep and after the rock hits the bottom, a sound wave travels at a constant speed of 303 m/s upwards until it reaches your ears and you actually hear the rock. How long will it take, in seconds, to hear the rock from the moment it is dropped?
