Would Anyone Be Able to Help Me With This. (it's my last assignment for this class and I completely don't get it.)

1. Leaving home, Mr.L walks 4 miles, West, past the hospital, to his office in 45 minutes. But, feeling short of breath, he walks back East 1 mile in 15 minutes to the hospital for a checkup.
a. What distance did he walk?
b. What was his displacement from home when he arrived at the hospital?
c. What was his average speed for the whole trip?
d. What was his average velocity for the whole trip?

2. Sometimes the numerical part of an acceleration is given as a negative number. How is a negative acceleration different from a positive acceleration?

3. In which of the following cases is the object accelerating? Be sure to tell why you say it is accelerating.
a. A motorcycle speeds up from rest.
b. A car slows to a stop for a red light.
c. A boat cruises in a straight line at 30 knots.
d. The boat, still traveling at 30 knots, turns around and heads back.

4. A descendant of Galileo drops a bowling ball, a baseball, and a crow's wing feather from the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Tell which of the three objects hit first, second and third. Explain your answer.

5. A car is traveling along at 50 mph, according to its speedometer. Thelma is driving and Louise is in the passenger's seat.
a. What is Louise's speed from Thelma's point of view (frame of reference)?
b. Wayne is standing at the curb as the car passes him. What is Louise's speed from Wayne's frame of reference?

Fuck, my asshole was smoking trying to figure that shit out. Apparently because of the Holidays most everybody is out of the office or at least the ones that matter. When is this due??
That MP3 player is the bomb diggity,(I'm so old school, am I not) but it was too tech for me at the time, when I looked at it. My brothers got a cool one on his site too(GreasyComb, Dave Wootten) if you look at the bottom where it says Rock Out (I think) but that's what the West Coast is gettin' down to.
You have good taste in music, too BTW.

I miss you darlin'! I got my number changed, so like.. I can't text you anymore. You so need to get your yahoo fixed. Because I'm all depressed and shit now that your gone, and I have nobody to talk to at 2:33 in the morning. Alot of shit has been going on involving cops and all that jazz. It's been a FUCKIN' AMAZING summer so far. Drinkin, partyin, havin' random sex, I think I might be pregnant. *I'm not a whore, I swear* You seriously need to give me your aim name because I get on there now and stuff. Well, this is long enough. I love you babes, and I miss you more each day.

Holla holla
