Question

# The frequencies of three tuning forks A, B and C have a relation $$n_{A}>n_{B}>n_{c}$$. When the forks A and B are sounded together the number of beats produced is n$$_{1}$$. When A and C are sounded together the number of beats produced is n$$_{2}$$, then the number of beats produced when B and C are sounded together is

A
nJ+n2
B
n1+n22
C
n2n1
D
n1n2

Solution

## The correct option is B $$n_{2}-n_{1}$$No. of beats produced, $$n=n_{1}- n_{2}$$When A and B are sounded, $$n_{1}=n_{A}- n_{B}$$When A and C are sounded, $$n_{2}=n_{A}- n_{C}$$When B and C are sounded: $$n=n_{B}- n_{C}$$    $$=(n_{A}- n_{C})-(n_{A}- n_{B})$$    $$=n_{2}-n_{1}$$Physics
