A plane sound wave of frequency 85.5Hz and velocity 342ms-1 is reflected from a vertical wall. At what distance from the wall does the wave have antinode?

A plane sound wave of frequency 85.5Hz and velocity 342ms-1 is reflected from a vertical wall. At what distance from the wall does the wave have antinode?

Answer Details

If F = 85.5Hz, V = 342ms-1, Then wavelength = V/F = 342/85.5 = 4m

Then if wavelength = 4m => wavelength/2 = 4/2 = 2m = NN, Thus NA = wavelength/4 = 4/4 = 1m.
