Question

A radio transmitting station operating at a frequency of 115 MHz has two identical antennas that radiate in phase. Antenna B is 8.95 m to the right of antenna A. Consider point P between the antennas and along the line connecting them, a horizontal distance x to the right of antenna A.

A) For what values of x will constructive interference occur at point P? Enter your answers in ascending order separated by a comma.

Answer #1

The frequency of the radio wave is 115MHz=115×10^6Hz

The velocity of a radio wave is 3×10^8m/sec

Velocity of a wave =frequency of the wave × wave length of the wave

3×10^8=115×10^6×wavelength of the wave

Wavelength of the wave =300/115~2.6m

The distance between the to radiating antenna is 8.95 m

Let the initial position of point p is at a distance x mts towards right of antenna A

8.95-2.6=6.35mts

6.25-2.6=3.75mts

3.75-2.6=1.15mts

So inorder to have a constructive iinterface between the to waves the point p should be at 1.15mts,3.75mts,6.35mts.

Two radio antennas are 110 m apart on a north-south line. The
two antennas radiate in phase at a frequency of 3.3 MHz. All radio
measurements are made far from the antennas. The smallest angle,
reckoned east of north from the antennas, at which constructive
interference of two radio waves occurs, is closest to:

What is the wavelength used by a radio station with a
transmitting frequency of 104.5 MHz?

Antenna B is 35.0 m to the right of antenna A. The two antennas
emit electromagnetic waves that are in phase and have wavelength
6.00 m. Both antennas have the same polarization. (a) At how many
points along the line connecting A and B is the interference
constructive? *hint* for Part A it is showing that the answer is
11.

FM radio station KRTH in Los Angeles broadcasts on an assigned
frequency of 101 MHz with a power of 50,000 W.
(a) What is the wavelength of the radio waves produced by this
station?
(b) Estimate the average intensity of the wave at a distance of
44.4 km from the radio transmitting antenna. Assume for the purpose
of this estimate that the antenna radiates equally in all
directions, so that the intensity is constant over a hemisphere
centered on the...

Two radio antennas separated by d = 302 m as shown in the figure
below simultaneously broadcast identical signals at the same
wavelength. A car travels due north along a straight line at
position x = 1330 m from the center point between the antennas, and
its radio receives the signals. Note: Do not use the small-angle
approximation in this problem.
(a) If the car is at the position of the second maximum after that
at point O when it...

same wavelength. A car travels due north along a straight line at
position x = 1,190 m from the center point between the
antennas, and its radio receives the signals. Hint: Do not
use the small-angle approximation in this problem.
