Complete QuestionA spherical wave with a wavelength of 2.0 mm is emitted from the origin. At one instant of time, the phase at r_1 = 4.0 mm is π rad. At that instant, what is the phase at r_2 = 3.5 mm ? Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units.Answer:The phase at the second point is

Explanation:From the question we are told that

The wavelength of the spherical wave is

The first radius is

The phase at that instant is

The second radius is

Generally the phase difference is mathematically represented as

this can also be expressed as

So we have that

substituting values
