Worksheet 19: Waves Problems 1. The equation of a certain wave is: y ( x,t ) = 0 . 1 sin [2 π ( x - 10 t )]. (a) It is moving right (positive x -direction) (b) λ = 1 m , f = 10 Hz , v = λf = 10 m/s (c) T = v 2 μ = 10 N (d) v transverse,max = = 2 π m/s 2. Sound enters into a tube which splits in two and then reconnects. Constructive interference occurs when λ n = ( π 2) r n for n = 1 , 2 , 3 ,... . Destructive interference occurs when λ n = ( π 2) r n + 1 2 for n = 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 ,... . 3. Radio waves are emitted and either travel straight to the detector or bounce oF the atmosphere before hitting the detector. The condition for constructive interference is: D 2 + 4 H 2 - D = for n = 1 , 2 , 3 ,... . 4. A wire is stretched between two walls.
