Problem 1P

Problem 1P

Two sources emit waves that are coherent, in phase, and have wavelengths of 26.0 m. Do the waves interfere constructively or destructively at an observation point 78.0 m from one source and 143 m from the other source?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 1P

Step 1 of 3

Here, we have to predict at a point, two light waves produces whether a constructive interference or destructive interference.

The equation for the path difference is,

Where,  and  are the distance to a point from different sources.
