2 Interference δ = λ Constructive Interference Interference of sound waves Phase shift due to path differences x When r 2 –r 1 =m λ Constructive Interference When r 2 –r 1 = (m+½) λ Destructive Interference m is any integer An experiment is performed to measure the speed of sound using by separating the sound from a single source along two separate paths with different path lengths and combining them at the detector. For a frequency of 3.0 kHz (assume v sound =340 m/s); A)What would the smallest path difference be to observe a
