Unformatted text preview: o and its width Δx. 3. Determine the Fourier series of a periodic square wave with period a . Verify your result by superimposing waves with the leading terms at http://www.phys.lsu.edu/classes/spring2011/phys4132/hw/superposition.html and attach a plot showing your result. 4. In three dimensions one can also have spherical waves, which diverge symmetrically from a point source (or converge toward a point). Describe spherical harmonic waves. a. write down the wave equation in relevant coordinates. b. find the solution to the wave equation. c. draw the real part of the solution as function of r and for two times t 1 = t and t 2 = t + τ/2....
