(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Medium of Physics

A Physics student performed the Young's Experiment to demonstrate the phenomenon of interference of light waves. He used two slits separated by a distance 'd' and positioned a screen at a distance 'L' from the slits. Using a monochromatic laser with a wavelength 'λ', the student observed the interference pattern formed on the screen. Determine the distance 'y' between the first two consecutive interference maxima on the screen, in terms of 'λ', 'd', and 'L'.
y = (Lλ)/d
y = (Ld)/λ
y = L(λ+d)
y = λ(d/L)
y = Lλd

Question 1:


In a laboratory experiment, two speakers are placed close to each other and produce sound waves of the same frequency and direction. Speaker A emits sound waves with an amplitude of 6.0 cm, while speaker B emits sound waves with an amplitude of 8.0 cm. What will be the resulting amplitude when the waves meet in phase?

Question 2:


One of the main characteristics of waves is that they can undergo interference when propagating in the same direction. When two or more sources generate waves in a medium, they interfere with each other, creating an interference pattern. What happens when two sources generate waves with the same frequency but different phases?
