Unformatted text preview: . 50 ns (pulse travel time in soil) from the surface; the top stone slab is 1 . 885 ns thick (pulse travel time in stone); the interior of the tomb is 8 . 00 ns high (pulse travel time in air); and the bottom stone slab is 1 . 885 ns thick (pulse travel time in stone). Since the pulse travels at 30 cm / s in the air, the interior of the tomb under station 3 (at the west end of the tomb) is 240 cm = 2 . 40 m high. At the east end (under, say, station 5), the corresponding time dierence is 74 . 77 ns 66 . 77 ns 2 = 4 . 00 ns which corresponds to an interior height equal to (4 . 00 ns)(30 cm / s) = 120 cm / s = 1 . 20 m....
