The icebergs hiss and crackle as they drift toward the equator. Why?

# How long would it take to fall through the center of the Earth?

# A passenger is late for a train

A passenger is late for a train. He stood at a railway station while the accelerating train passed him car by car. The passenger noticed that the last train car passed him for 8 seconds and the previous train car for 10 seconds. How long was the passenger late for the train?

# The stones in the container

A vertical container (right rectangular prism) with base area measuring 0.15 m by 0.2 m is being filled with identical small stones, each with a volume of 2*10^{-8} m^{3} and a mass of 0.05*10^{-3} kg. Assume that the volume of the empty spaces between the stones is negligible. If the height of the stones in the container increases at the rate of 3*10^{-3} m/s, at what rate does the mass of the stones in the container increase?
