Problem 17

Five clocks are being tested in a laboratory. Exactly at noon, as determined by the WWV time signal, on successive days of a week the clocks read as in the following table. Rank the five clocks according to their relative value as good timekeepers, best to worst. Justify your choice. Clock Sun. Mon. Thes. Wed. Thurs. Fri. Sat. A 12:36:40 12:36:56 12:37:12 12:37:27 12:37:44 12:37:59 12:38:14 B 11:59:59 12:00:02 11:59:57 12:00:07 12:00:02 11:59:56 12:00:03 C 15:50:45 15:51:43 15:52:41 15:53:39 15:54:37 15:55:35 15:56:33 D 12:03:59 12:02:52 12:01:45 12:00:38 11:59:31 11:58:24 11:57:17 E 12:03:59 12:02:49 12:01:54 12:01:52 12:01:32 12:01:22 12:01:12

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Earth Science Notes Friction between the wind & the ocean surface generates undulations of water  waves Stormy area at Sea is called a ‘generating region’ Wave Interference: waves interacting with each other and waves that align create much larger waves and produce killer waves because the clashing of the energy from both or multiple waves Wave Refraction: the bending of waves and over time with erosion, the waves try to straighten the coastline out (Coastal Straightening) Types of Coastline:  Erosional: typically rugged, high relief (vertical elevation difference – between altitude of places), tectonically active  Depositional (east coast): gentle relief, sediments from different areas are deposited & available ­ Barrier Spits: deposits build up in areas that jut out into the ocean (don’t last very long) ­ Bay Barrier: body of water trapped by sand deposits (lagoon) ­ Tombolo: sand bridge, enough sand accumulates between island and land Jetty: a breakwater constructed to protect or defend a harbor, stretch of coast, or riverbank (Cred to Google for definition) ­ Groins: smaller versions of Jetty Beach: sediment (depositional material) in motion and an average picture of how big a beach is about 16 feet over tide Barrier Islands: long, narrow, depositional features; generally made of sand Coral Reefs (biological processes): simple marine animals with small bodies – related to many invertebrates ­ Largest Coral Reef is over a 1000 miles in length and 90 miles in width near Australia ­ Coral reefs need warm waters which are located near the equator and shallow water, so they form near land (sunlight)
