Hello!

Yes, but I've receive a warning in that thread. In fact, this is the right place to post homework questions, isn't it?

Yes it is, and you did not follow the template. You deleted two of the most important parts of the homework template: Relevant equations and The attempt at a solution.

We don't do your homework for you at this site. We help you do your own homework. You need to show what you have done to attempt to solve the problem.

So what are the relevant equations here, and what have you done to answer this question?
