Two radio antennas separated by d = 286 m, as shown in the figure below, simultaneously broadcast identical signals at the same wavelength. A car travels due north alonga straight line at position x = 1,380 m from the center point between the antennas, and its radio receives the signals. Hint: Do not use the small-angle approximation inthis problem.(a) If the car is at the position of the second maximum after that at point O when it has traveled a distance of y = 400 m northward, what is the wavelength of thesignals?41.45XEnter a number. is within 10% of the correct value. This may be due to roundoff error, or you could have a mistake in your calculation. Carry out all intermediateresults to at least four-digit accuracy to minimize roundoff error. m(b) How much farther must the car travel to encounter the next minimum in reception?200XYour response differs from the correct answer by more than 10%. Double check your calculations. m
