Two waves with the same frequency have amplitudes 1 cm and 3 cm.

What is the amplitude of the in phase superposition (in cm)? What is the amplitude of the 180  out of phase superposition (in cm)?

Amplitudes simply add linearly. Or at least i know for certain they do when superimposed which i believe is essentially superposition

A. Maximum reinforcement occurs at zero phase difference meaning 0 degrees.
A = A1+A2 = 4 cm.
B. Minimum reinforcement occurs at 2pi or 180 deg phase difference.
A = A1-A2 = -2 cm.
