ok... Im a tard... somebody, ANYBODY!, please help! tell me what I'm doing wrong? or better yet tell me what to fix and how to? this is a class project. I'm failing this class because Im not grasping programming... and I started with C++ then came to this, HELP!?! #This
program will calculate the time it will take a sound to travel based on #the
matter it is traveling through; air, water, or steel.
def main(): #declare
and initialize variables #AIR
AIR = 1100 #WATER
WATER = 4900 #STEEL
STEEL = 16400 #MenuChoice
MenuChoice = " " #feet
as int #feet
= 0 #seconds
seconds = 0 #Intro
print "WELCOME TO THE SPEED OF SOUND PROGRAM!!!"
print "I will calculate the time it takes for a souond to travel through"
print "different matter." #build
menu for user to choose from
print "Please choose from the following menu:
print " A) Air"
print " W) Water"
print " S) Steel" #prompt
user for MenuChoice
MenuChoice = raw_input("
Please enter your choice here: ") #prompt
user for distance of travel
feet = input("Now, please enter the distance that the sound wave will travel(feet): ") #calculate
time for sound to travel
A = AIR
W = WATER
S = STEEL
if MenuChoice == A:
seconds = feet / AIR
elif MenuChoice == W:
seconds = feet / WATER
MenuChoice == S
seconds = feet / STEEL #display
ETA of the sound
It will take", seconds, "second(s) for the sound wave to travel."
ps... I have this indented but it's not showing up on the message board.
