Greetings,

I have a question on superposition of two waves and I am pretty new to the topic. I am not contended with my solution and seek your evaluation. Any suggestion, comment is welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Homework Statement



Consider the superposition of two waves x1 = A1 cos(ω1t) and x2 =
A2 cos(ω2t + δ). If ω1[itex]\cong[/itex] ω2,
(a) What is the beat frequency?
(b) What is the maximum amplitude?
(c) What is the minimum amplitude?



Homework Equations



Trigonometric identities for Product-to-sum and sum-to-product.

Your work is too hard to read. Writing too light.

Anyway, this is just high school trig, really.
