## Homework Statement

A stone is dropped into a well. The splash is heard 3 seconds later. What is the depth of the well?

## Homework Equations

the change in t= change in length/ velocity of sound

## The Attempt at a Solution

V= 343 m/s which is the speed of sound

Ok I solved for depth. I made L=d. Then my equation looked like this. D= t * v

D= (3s) * 343 m/s = 1029 meters

The answer is 41 meters if you round off. I've seen solutions to this problem, but I need a walkthrough as to how to do it because I don't understand how the experts on cramster solved this problem.
