(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] What is the phase difference between the motions of two points on the wave..

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The frequency of a certain wave is [tex]500Hz[/tex] and its speed is [tex]340ms^{-1}[/tex].What is the phase difference between the motions of two points on the wave [tex]0.17cm[/tex] apart?

2. Relevant equations

[tex]x = \frac{d\lambda}{a}[/tex]

[tex]v = f\lambda[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex]f = 500Hz \ \ \ v = 340ms^{-1} \ \ \ a = 0.17 \times 10^{-2} cm[/tex]

[tex]v = f\lambda[/tex]

[tex]\lambda = \frac{v}{f} = \frac{340}{500} = 0.68m[/tex]

What should I do next?
