## Homework Statement

Two loudspeakers are placed on a wall 1.00 m apart. A listener stands 4.00 m from the wall directly in front of one of the speakers. A single oscillator is driving the speakers at a frequency of 800 Hz.

(a) What is the phase difference between the two waves when they reach the observer? (Your answer should be between 0 and 2π.)

(b) What is the frequency closest to 800 Hz to which the oscillator may be adjusted such that the observer hears minimal sound?

## Homework Equations

delta r = (phi/2pi)lamda

frequency = velocity/lamd

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found the dimensions of the triangle that is formed when the person stands in front of one speaker 4.00m away which is:

a=4,b=1,c=sqrt(17)
