Can I google it and answer it?[sarcasm]Well, ya'll are fun.[/sarcasm]
I guess it's a little boring without Elephantower's ridiculously hard questions, but aren't you doing Geomaps, Unome?
Yes, but I know nothing about it.[sarcasm]Well, ya'll are fun.[/sarcasm]

It's the boundary between the crust/upper mantle. I think P waves travel faster along the Moho so that's how they discovered it?
Yes, totally right.It's the boundary between the crust/upper mantle. I think P waves travel faster along the Moho so that's how they discovered it?
Not sure about my answers even before asking this, but did you mean 24 feet or 24 m since the elevation change is 18 ft? Well,Marvin is walking around on a mountain when he sees an outcropping of granite. He feels the granite and realizes the bed is dipping at 14 degrees. He then walks a little bit to the right, 24 meters in the horizontal direction, and realizes that he is now 18 feet above where he first encountered the granite. What is the true thickness of the bed?
36.514 ft?
23.271 ft?
I think they meant 24 feet, but can I see your method of solving this?Not sure about my answers even before asking this, but did you mean 24 feet or 24 m since the elevation change is 18 ft?Marvin is walking around on a mountain when he sees an outcropping of granite.

26 feet using 24 feet 80 feet using 24m (78.74 feet)
