Question: a pwave is traveling through a rock unit velocity 1200...

Question details

A P-wave is traveling through a rock unit (velocity =1200 m/s). This rock unit is in contact with another unit that has greater seismic wave velocities (P-wave = 3800 m/s; S-wave = 1900 m/s). At what angle must a ray strike the contact between these two units to produce a compressional head wave? A shear head wave?
