## Homework Statement

The velocity of the transverse waves produced

by an earthquake is 6.96 km/s, while that of

the longitudinal waves is 12.0408 km/s. A

seismograph records the arrival of the trans-

verse waves 59.4 s after that of the longitudi-

nal waves.

How far away was the earthquake?

Answer in units of km.

## Homework Equations

maybe v = x/t

## The Attempt at a Solution
