Two sound speakers are separated by a distance d , each sounding a frequency f . An observer stands at one speaker and walks in a straight line a distance x , perpendicular to the the two speakers, until he comes to the first maximum intensity of sound. The speed of sound is v . How far is he from the speaker?

x 2 + d 2 x = λ , x 2 + d 2 = ( λ + x ) 2 x 2 + d 2 = λ 2 + 2 x λ + x 2 , d 2 = λ 2 + 2 x λ x = d 2 ( v f ) 2 2 v f

Two speakers producing the same frequency of sound are a distance of d apart. Consider an arc along a circle of radius R , centered at the midpoint of the speakers, as shown below. (a) At what angles will there be maxima? (b) At what angle will there be minima?

Picture shows a triangle with two sides of r1 and 2. The height of a triangle is 6 meters. The altitude to the base of the triangle splits the base into two parts that are 2 meters and 3 meters long. Picture is a drawing of two speakers placed at a distance d apart. The sound waves produced by the speakers meet at the point r1 from the top speaker and r2 from the bottom one. R is the distance from the point located equidistantly between the speakers to the to point where there the waves meet. Line R forms angle theta with the line perpendicular to the line connecting two speakers.

a. For maxima Δ r = d sin θ d sin θ = n λ n = 0 , ± 1 , ± 2 .... , θ = sin −1 ( n λ d ) n = 0 , ± 1 , ± 2 ....
b. For minima, Δ r = d sin θ d sin θ = ( n + 1 2 ) λ n = 0 , ± 1 , ± 2 .... θ = sin −1 ( ( n + 1 2 ) λ d ) n = 0 , ± 1 , ± 2 ....
