  • What am I doing wrong? A soccer player kicks a rock horizontally...?

    A soccer player kicks a rock horizontally off a 43.0-m-high cliff into a pool of water. If the player hears the sound of the splash 3.14 s later, what was the initial speed given to the rock? Assume the speed of sound in air is 343 m/s. I found the time from using the kinematics question which was 2.96s. time displacement = 3.14-2.96 = 0.18s... show more

Assume the speed of sound in air is 343 m/s. I found the time from using the kinematics question which was 2.96s. time displacement = 3.14-2.96 = 0.18s x=44.3 therefore I got my initial speed of 14.9 m/s but my online hw says it's wrong. I have check and redid my hw a 104939 times and I still get the same answer. What am I doing wrong? In advance, thank you for your time and help.

  • How you ever pushed away someone who took advantage of you?

    I had this friend since 2010 and just last year we started becoming really close. We would hang out all the time, talk about each other lives, tell each secrets, and so on. However, they started talking about themselves nonstop and they would say the same stuff over and over again. It would irritate me. And they would distract me from studies to keep talking about the same damn thing over again. Then they started taking advantage of my kindness. Also, they were not very considerate of me. For instance, I had texted them if they would like to go to Barnes and Noble to read and they said sure, so I went to pick them up since they didn't have a car. It was about a 5 mile drive to the bookstore and when we got there, they're like "oh, I'm suppose to be somewhere in 20 mins." Therefore, I had to waste my gas and time to drive them back home. Another example is that they would ask favor after favor. I would talk to them about how they repeated stuff, but they continue their bad habit... But after awhile, I couldn't stand how they took advantage of me and would waste my time, so I slowly drifted from them. The last time we hung out was New Years, but every time I see them I have this very uncomfortable feeling. It's like I don't want to be around them or even say hi to them. The other day I ran into them in library and I just felt so weird and uneasy. I don't considered them to be a bad person, but I just don't want to be around them. Have you ever pushed away someone who took advantage of you? Also, do you have an uneasy and uncomfortable feeling when you see them or talk to them?

She was telling me about how her body went under shock and the doctors thought she completely died, when she actually didn't. She said she dug herself out of her grave and came back to find her love ones. I also had another dream of my father coming back from the dead. He passed away almost two years ago. He came back to live with me and my mother (my parents divorced ten years ago) and I got mad at him. I told him he can't come back and to go back. He didn't listen and my parents were "in love" all over again. What does it this mean? In general, what does it mean to dream of the dead coming back alive?

It was very hard for me, I went through a heart break and depression. Lately, I've been feeling a good, positive energy yet my heart still feels a little broken. We're still very good friends, and we're giving each other space to get over one another. Why could I possibly still feel a little heart broken even though I have a gut feeling that something wonderful is going to happen? It sounds very contradicting to feel like this... Thank you!
