## Homework Statement

Two speakers A and B, sends out sounds at 400 hz

In what distance x between speaker A and the point P is it constructive interference ?

## Homework Equations

λ = 2ΔL/(2p-1),

v = 340 m/s

f = 400 Hz

## The Attempt at a Solution

λ = 2ΔL/(2p-1),

λ = 340/400 = 0.85 m <==>

lowest constructive interference p = 1

0.85 m = ΔL <==>

0.85 = y - x, where y = (2.5)^2+x^2=y^2 is the distance between P and B.

Is this right ?
