4th Problem Set Phy132 Due Friday, February 10 Problem 1 . The net amplitude at a point in space is equal to the sum of the following two amplitudes: d 1 ( t ) = 4 sin ( ωt ) (1) and d 2 ( t ) = 4 cos ( ωt ) (2) Determine the resultant amplitude, d ( t ) = d 1 ( t ) + d 2 ( t ). Hint: write the cosine function as a sine function with a phase and add the two sine functions. Problem 2 . Two small speakers emit sound waves of diFerent frequencies, that is, they are in- coherent sources. Speaker A has an output of 10 milli-watts, and speaker B has an output of 20 milli-watts. You are located a distance of 5 meters away from speaker B, and 4 meters away from speaker A. What sound intensity level (in dB) do you hear if a)only speaker A is on b)only speaker B is on c)both speakers are on Problem 3 . Luis is standing on the sidewalk when a police car drives by with its siren on. As the car approaches, Luis notices that the frequency of the siren is 560 Hz.
