Velocity of seismic wave?
Would it be possible to use mobile phones to determine the velocity of a seismic wave? I imagine an experiment similar to the velocity of sound.

1) Place two people with hammers at a distance of 5 meters on a concrete floor
2) Place two phones between them
3) Measure the distance between the phones
4) Apply the first hammer to start the stopwatches
5) Apply the second hammer to stop the stopwatches
