We know that the beat frequency is the difference in the two frequencies. Therefore, the unknown tuning fork must have a frequency that is either 2 Hz higher or 2 Hz lower than the tuning fork with the 360Hz frequency. 360 Hz 2 Hz 358 Hz or 362 Hz f f= = The analogous reasoning applies to the second tuning fork. 355 Hz 3 Hz 352 Hz or 358 Hz f f= = Therefore, the frequency must be 358 Hz as it is the only frequency in common....
