I voted to close the question for the reason that it belongs on Mathematics SE. The main closure reason was the homework reason, which I do disagree with. I think this question aligns more with the "needs detail and clarity" reason.
To address some misconceptions:
however I do think that what the actual substance of the question is actually high ...
It totally deserved to be closed. Indications are that the OP wanted something short and quick, possibly because of some deadline on a test or an exam. Moreover there is no way to answer this question using physics principles, so it is better suited to MathSE than PSE.
