  1. Mar 16, 2005 #1

    Question # 4. Im studying for the AP test coming up pretty soon, and im having a hard time with this question, waves and sound have always been a problem for me. I really dont know where to start, ive never encountered a problem like this one. Any help is appreciated.

    And i am only in highschool, but since the AP test is based at the college level i thought it made sense to post it here.

    Say the wavelength is 1 m. If you are 1 m away from one of the speakers and 1.5 m away from the other, what do you know about the relative phase of the two sound waves you're hearing? What will their sum be? This should help you with part b.
