$P = \frac{a}{r}~cos(ct)$

Work Step by Step

Let $r = n\lambda$ $P = \frac{a}{r}~cos(\frac{2\pi r}{\lambda}-ct)$ $P = \frac{a}{r}~cos(\frac{2\pi n\lambda}{\lambda}-ct)$ $P = \frac{a}{r}~cos(2\pi n-ct)$ $P = \frac{a}{r}[cos(2\pi n)~cos(ct)+sin(2\pi n)~sin(ct)]$ $P = \frac{a}{r}[(1)~cos(ct)+0]$ $P = \frac{a}{r}~cos(ct)$
