Interference of Waves: Maximum intensity again

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

Two 1.0M-Hz radio antennas emitting in-phase are separated by 600m along a north-south line. A radio receiver placed 2.0 km east is equidistant from both the transmitting antennas and picks up a fairly strong signal. How far north should that receiver by moved if it is again to detect a signal nearly as strong.

non-paraxial solution, so no small-angle assumption. Also, assume antenna diameters are arbitrarily small emitting spherical waves.

Interference of sound waves

Two loudspeakers emit sound waves along the x-axis. The sound has maximum intensity when the speakers are 20 cm apart. The sound intensity decreases as the distance between the speakers is increased, reaching zero at a separation of 60 cm. What is the wavelength of the sound? The answer is not 20 or 60.
