You hear a beat produced by 2 sources: 342.6 and 351.8 Hz. What is the period of the resulting beat tone? -- is there a formula for this? If so what is it and how do you solve the question?

• Physics -

beats occur in nonlinear mediums, you get the sum, and the difference frequency. Often, we just look at the difference frequency as the beat...here it is 351.8-342.6=9.2hz

period then is 1/9.2 seconds
