He wants to investigate the relationship of the distance between two coherent sources of sound waves, a, and the distance between two consecutives of constructive interference, x. The distance between the location where the sound is detected, D, is 5 m. The results of the experiment is shown in the graph of x against as in Diagram 2.1. (a) Based on the graph in diagram 2.1. (i) (ii) State the relationship between x and a. ________________________________________________________________ Determine the value of x if a = 4 m. Show on the graph, how you determined the value of x. [1 mark]
