Two radio antennas are 100 m apart along a north-south line. They broadcast identical radio waves at a frecuency of 3.0 MHz. Your job is to monitor the signal strenth with a handheld reciever. To get your first measuring point, you walk 800 meters east from the midpoint between the antennas, then 600 meters north.

a) what is the phase difference between the waves at this point?. Is the interference at this point constructive, destructive or something in between.

Wave Optics (Interference)

4. A card containing two slits separated center-to-center by 0.1mm, is illuminated by a red laser (lambda = 632:82nm). If the fringes on an observing screen are to be 10mm apart, how far away (in m) should the screen be?

5. Two parallel slits 0.1mm apart are illuminated and it is found that the fifth bright fringe is at an angle of 1.2 degree. Determine the wavelength of the light (in nm).

6. Two 1MHz radio antennas emitting in-phase are separated by 600m along a north-south line. A radio placed 20km east is equidistant from both transmitting antennas and picks up a fairly strong signal. How far north (in km) should that receiver be moved if it is again to detect a signal nearly as strong.
