Question 1 (10 marks)
Find the following limits.

Solution

Since

takes the form

at x = – 8, we apply L’ Hôpital’s rule to give

Amplitude is higher than original wave.

Amplitude is lower than resultant wave.

Standing wave.

Progressive wave.

a) When

Since cos 0 = 1,

New original waves do not have any significant changes.

The new resultant wave

will now have a phase difference of
