Phase different and Intensity?
1)Determine the phase difference between the waves.
How to find it?
2)The intensity of wave Y at point P is I.
Determine, in terms of I, the intensity of wave Z

1) Both waves displace along the t-axis, which is x=0
So one way to find the phase difference will be to find the difference in t-axis when the waves cross over to positiveY-wave crosses over at 0 ms, while Z wave crosses over at 1.0 msso phase difference = 1.0 ms - 0 ms = 1.0 ms2) Intensity of Y-wave = 4μm = I Intensity of Z-wave = 2 μm = ½I
