Question

Two identical loudspeakers are some distance apart. A person stands 5.70 m from one speaker and 2.80 m from the other. What is the fourth lowest frequency at which destructive interference will occur at this point? The speed of sound in air is 343m/s.

Answer #1

here,

Destructive interference of two identical soundwaves occurs, if the
sound waves are exactly shifted by one half of their wavelength.
That means the difference in path length from source to observer
need to be an integer multiple of half od wavelength:

n·(lamda/2) = dL (with n=1,2,3.....

So destructive interference occurs, if the wavelength is:

lamda = 2·dL/n

Corresponding frequencies are

f = c/lamda = c·n / (2·dL)

The fourth frequency is for n=4,

f_min = 4 *c/(2·dL) = 343m/s * 4 / ( 2· (5.7m - 2.8 m)) = 236.55 Hz

the frequency is 236.55 Hz

Two identical loudspeakers are some distance apart. A person
stands 5.70 m from one speaker and 2.80 m from the other. What is
the fourth lowest frequency at which destructive
interference will occur at this point? The speed of sound in air is
343m/s.

Two identical loudspeakers are some distance apart. A person
stands 4.40 m from one speaker and 3.50 m from the other. What is
the third lowest frequency at which destructive interference will
occur at this point? The speed of sound in air is 343m/s.

Follow these steps to solve this problem: Two identical
loudspeakers, speaker 1 and speaker 2, are 2.0 m apart and are
emitting 1700-Hz sound waves into a room where the speed of sound
is 340 m/s. Consider a point 4.0 m in front of speaker 1, which
lies along a line from speaker 1, that is perpendicular to a line
between the two speakers. Is this a point of maximum constructive
interference, a point of perfect destructive interference, or
something...

Two loudspeakers emit coherent in phase sound waves with at a
frequency of 68.8 Hz. The speed of sound is 344.0 m/s.
Point q is vertically located 2.0 m from the bottom speaker and
5.0 m from the top speaker. At point q, is there maximum
constructive interference, complete destructive interference, or
neither?? Explain your answer.

Two identical loudspeakers 2.20 m apart are emitting sound waves
into a room where the speed of sound is 340 m/s. Abby is standing
4.00 m in front of one of the speakers, perpendicular to the line
joining the speakers, and hears a maximum in the intensity of the
sound.
What is the lowest possible frequency of sound for which this is
possible?

Two loudspeakers are separated by a distance of 7.6 m. A
listener sits directly in front of one speaker at a distance of 6.6
m so that the two speakers and the listener form a right triangle.
Find the lowest frequency for which the path difference from the
speakers to the listener is an odd number of half-wavelengths.
Assume the speed of sound is 340 m/s.
Find the second lowest frequency for which the path difference
from the speakers to...

Two loudspeakers on a concert stage are vibrating in phase. A
listener is 47.0 m from the left speaker and 33.1 m from the right
one. The listener can respond to all frequencies from 20 to 20 000
Hz, and the speed of sound is 343 m/s. What is the lowest frequency
that can be heard loudly due to constructive interference?

Two loudspeakers on a concert stage are vibrating in phase. A listener 50.5 m from the left speaker and 26.0 m from the right one. the listener can respond to all frequencies from 20 to 20 000Hz, and the speed of sound is 343 m/s. What are the two lowest frequencies that can be heard loudly due to constructive interference?

A person standing a certain distance from fifteen identical
loudspeakers is hearing a sound level intensity of 112 dB. What
sound level intensity would this person hear if three are turned
off?

A person standing a certain distance from eighteen identical
loudspeakers is hearing a sound level intensity of 118 dB. What
sound level intensity would this person hear if seven are turned
off?
