comment Refraction seismology - travel time for wave
Ah! Thanks a lot. Yes, you are absolutely right. I mixed up the t-intercept and the travel time. Now it all makes sense.

Thanks. I would really, really be grateful if you could provide me with the derivation.

comment Jumping on earth versus jumping on the moon
Yes, as I wrote below, it turns out I screwed this one up by assuming $v_0$ to be equal in both jumps. Hopefully this will be the only major blunder on the exam (which I felt I did quite well on otherwise).

comment Jumping on earth versus jumping on the moon
Thank you so much for your answer. I actually got a confirmation from my professor today that this was indeed how we were supposed to interpret the problem. So it turns out I was wrong after all. Too bad, but at least now I will be more careful with problems such as these in the future when it comes to making assumptions.

comment Jumping on earth versus jumping on the moon
Thanks a lot! I am crossing my fingers I interpreted it correctly. The way I stated the problem is a direct copy of the way the problem was asked, and, as mentioned, this is a non-calculus based physics class. During the exam I thought perhaps our professor added the mass-information just to throw us a bit off track. Time will tell if I'm right :)
