A pair of speakers separated by a distance d = 0.700 m are driven by the same oscillator at a frequency of 686 Hz. An observer originally positioned at one of the speakers begins to walk along a line perpendicular to the line joining the speakers as in Figure P14.37. (a) How far must the observer walk before reaching a relative maximum in intensity? (b) How far will the observer be from the speaker when the first relative minimum is detected in the intensity?

Question

A pair of speakers separated by a distance d = 0.700 m are driven by the same oscillator at a frequency of 686 Hz.

(a) How far must the observer walk before reaching a relative maximum in intensity? (b) How far will the observer be from the speaker when the first relative minimum is detected in the intensity?
