    Destructive Interference:

    Destructive Interference: Please Help! Two loudspeakers are 2.36m apart. A person stands 2.8m from one speaker and 3.4m from the other. What is the lowest frequency at which destructive interference will occur at this point? My answer is wrong, but this is what I did: 3.4m-2.8m=0.6m, so...

    Unsure how to begin

    I'm not even sure how to begin this problem. Can someone help me out? A dog, with a mass of 12.0 kg, is standing on a flatboat so that he is 29.7 m from the shore. He walks 8.7m on the boat toward the shore and then stops. The boat has a mass of 44.0kg. Assuming there is no friction...

    Conservation of Energy Problem

    Here's a problem involving conservation of energy. My answer is wrong, but I can't figure out why. I would be extremely grateful for some help :smile: A skier (m=59.00 kg) starts sliding down from the top of a ski jump with negligible friction and takes off horizontally. If h, the...
