Reviewing the Basics Constructive Interference: total phase equivalent Destructive Interference: total phase separated by half cycle Note: these waves have identical periods and wavelengths, but that is not always the case!
Checking 1D interference Two speakers are connected to the same function generator with reversed wiring. One speaker is placed a half wavelength in front. What type of interference results? A) Constructive B) Destructive C) Partial D) Depends on what time you choose E) Insufficient information to decide

Checking 1D interference Two speakers are wired to the same function generator. The phase constants differ by π /2. One speaker is placed a quarter wavelength in front. What type of interference results? A) Constructive B) Destructive C) Partial D) Depends on what time you choose E) Insufficient information to decide
