(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A spherical wave with a wavelength of 2.0 m is emitted from the origin. At one instant of time, the phase at 4m is (pi) . At that instant, what is the phase at 3.5m? What is the phase at 4.5m at the same instant?

2. Relevant equations

∆Φ = 2π[(∆x)/λ]

3. The attempt at a solution

First i set 2 as ∆x and either 3.5 or 2.5 as λ which didn't work

Thanks in advance
