Two waves are propagating to the point P along a straight line produced by two sources, A and B, of simple harmonic and equal frequency. The amplitude of every wave at P is ‘a’ and the phase of A is ahead by π/3 than that of B, and the distance AP is greater than BP by 50 cm. If the wavelength is 1 meter, then the resultant amplitude at point P will be:
1. 2a
2. $a\sqrt{3}$
3. $a\sqrt{2}$
4. a
