Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Two similar tuning forks produce sound waves of the same 2 . 9 mPa amplitude. One tuning fork y 1 has a frequency 936 s 1 and the other y 2 has a frequency of 1040 s 1 . These two tuning forks produce interference. + A + A AA T beat T wave y 1 y 2 y 1 + y 2 + A A 3 T beat 6 T beat What is the number of beats per second that is heard? Correct answer: 104 Hz.
