Lesson: Production of Standing WavesPhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to determine the wavelength, frequency, and amplitude of standing waves produced through the superposition of traveling waves.
Sample Question Videos
Two sinusoidal waves with identical wavelengths and amplitudes travel in opposite directions along a string, producing a standing wave. The linear mass density of the string is 0.075 kg/m and the tension in the string is 5.0 N. The time interval between instances of total destructive interference is 0.13 s. What is the wavelength of the waves?
A string is fixed at both ends to supports 3.50 m apart and has a linear mass density of 0.00500 kg/m. The string is under a tension of 90.00 N. A standing wave is produced on the string with six nodes and five antinodes.
Find the wave speed of the standing wave
Find the wavelength of the standing wave.
Find the frequency of the standing wave.
Find the period of the standing wave.
