  1. Solution:
    (a) The low flying aircraft reflects the TV signals. Due to superposition between the direct signal received by the antenna and the reflected signals from aircraft. We sometimes notice slight shaking of the picture on the TV screen.
    (b) Superposition principle states how to explain the formation of resultant wave by combination of two or more waves. Let and y2 represent instantaneous displacement of two superimposing waves, then resultant waves instantaneous displacement is given by
