Name ___________________________________ Student ID _______________ Score ______ _____ last first Physics 123A, Spring 2008 Exam 2 WO-UWA123A082T-E2(2SI,MSI)sol V. [20 points total] Two sources of periodic water waves, S 1 and S 2 , produce circular waves of frequency f o in a large ripple tank, as shown. The sources are in phase and are separated by a distance equal to the wavelength of the waves (i.e., d = ± o ). Point N (not shown) is a point of complete destructive interference. Assume point N is very far away from the two sources. Ignore any dependence of the amplitude of a wave on the distance the wave travels from a source. A. Suppose the frequency of the two sources is reduced to f o /2. i. [4 pts] After the frequency is reduced, would the wavelength of the periodic waves increase, decrease, or remain the same? Explain. Since the medium (and hence v , the speed of propagation of the waves) is unchanged, the relationship v = ± f implies a decrease in frequency f will cause an increase in the wavelength ± .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
