Can someone explain why the phase difference is zero when the there is equal number of nodes between the two vibrating particles.

Thank you

You may need to reformulate. Between two particles can be some number of nodes. What would mean for this number to be "equal"?
Equality is a binary operator. Equal to what? Between two particles there is one number of nodes, not two.

Sorry, I meant to say even number of nodes

The phase changes by Π (180 degree) when you pass one node. You can see this if you imagine (or draw) a snapshot of the wave. On one side of the node all the points go up and on the other side they all go down.
