 P: 25 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data One microphone is located at the origin, and a second microphone is located on the +y axis. The microphones are separated by a distance of D=1.5 m. A source of sound is located on the +x axis, its distances from microphones 1 and 2 being L1 and L2, respectively. The speed of sound is 343 m/s. The sound reaches microphone 1 first, and then .00146 s later, microphone 2. Find the distances L1 and L2 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution L1= x L2= x + (343 * .00146) 1.5^2 + X^2 = (x+ (343*.00146))^2 x= 1.996 L1=1.996 L2=2.4968
 Sci Advisor HW Helper P: 4,300 The answer almost looks OK. You just forgot one thing...
 P: 26 i feel its perfectly ok.. plz tell what he forgot
 Sci Advisor HW Helper P: 4,300 Question about sound... Units! L1 = 1.996 lightyears? meters? yards? GeV-1?
