I'm learning physics from a tutor over winter break, but the material is proving to be mindnumbing. I guess I'm too slow at learning the particular material.
Here's a problem that I can't grasp… if I can get this I think I can understand how this kind of problem works.
At t=0, a stone is dropped from a cliff above a lake; 1.0 seconds later another stone is thrown downward from the same point with an initial speed of 37 m/s. Both stones hit the water at the same instant. Find the height of the cliff.
I can't really tell how to do this problem. My tutor just told me about these "3 kinematic equations" but I can't make heads or tails from it. I guess my biggest problem is that I didn't memorize all the symbols for the various physics terms.
I'm really interested in physics but I can't figure this out… any help will be appreciated.
The man shuddered as the shadow drew a glistening sword from his back. Creeping closer and closer with his pale eyes burning into the man, the shadow slowly raised his blade and before he could thrust it down, the man heard the shadow hiss something.
"The Shadow Clan's presence must be like a whisper. Always felt, but never seen…"
