Two vibrating tuning forks produce progressive waves given by \(Y_1 = 4 ~\mathrm{sin}~500 \pi \mathrm{t}\) and \(Y_2 = 2 ~\mathrm{sin}~506 \pi \mathrm{t}\). The number of beats produced per minute is:

1. | \(3\) | 2. | \(360\) |

3. | \(180\) | 4. | \(60\) |

If a wave is travelling in a positive X-direction with A = 0.2 m, velocity = 360 m/s, and λ = 60 m, then the correct expression for the wave will be:

1. | \(\mathrm{y}=0.2 \sin \left[2 \pi\left(6 \mathrm{t}+\frac{\mathrm{x}}{60}\right)\right]\) |

2. | \(\mathrm{y}=0.2 \sin \left[ \pi\left(6 \mathrm{t}+\frac{\mathrm{x}}{60}\right)\right]\) |

3. | \(\mathrm{y}=0.2 \sin \left[2 \pi\left(6 \mathrm{t}-\frac{\mathrm{x}}{60}\right)\right]\) |

Two waves have the following equations:

${x}_{1}$ $=$ $a$ $\mathrm{sin}$ $(\omega t$ $+$ ${\varphi}_{1})$

${x}_{2}$ $=$ $a$ $\mathrm{sin}$ $(\omega t$ $+$ ${\varphi}_{2})$

If in the resultant wave, the frequency and amplitude remain equal to the amplitude of superimposing waves, then the phase difference between them will be:

1. $\frac{\mathrm{\pi}}{6}$

2. $\frac{2\mathrm{\pi}}{3}$

3. $\frac{\mathrm{\pi}}{4}$

4. $\frac{\mathrm{\pi}}{3}$
