I watched a film the other day called IMPACT or something where something from space hit earth and caused a massive Sunami and I was wondering what if...
I live approx. 65 miles from the nearest coastline and my home town is approx. 128mtr above sea level, lets just say that a big rock hit the sea approx. 100 miles from my house (which would be approx. 40 miles from the coastline) and caused a big wave, forget about the fact that I would probably be dead etc.
Lets also assume that the land increases steadily over the course of 60 miles from sea level to 128mtr above sea level and doesnt go up and down (hills and valleys)
My questions is How tall must this wave be (60 miles away and at sea level) to cover my house by say 50 feet when it gets to my house?
This is probably a stupid question to a stupid problem but thought I'd ask anyway :-)
I wrote a code generator a while back in Delphi.
The following code when deciphered would read ABCDEF
The only drawback with this is that if you wrote a whole sentence, it would be quite a long string, can anyone say how I have done this?
Does anyone know how to calculate the size of each voussoir for a stone arch
Lets say the following :-
Radius = 24 inch
Voussoir Height = 6 inch
Number of Voussoirs = 9 (this would be 4 either side and 1 in middle as keystone)
This is also based on a Roman Semi Circle arch
I need to know the 4 angles of each vioussoir and the length of the intrados and extrados
I know that this must be a simple formula for you guys but its doing my head lol
Is there any chance of instead of saying x/y+c=gg could you please use the numbers above and show how you get the results
Thanks in advance
