- 1. Standing Waves on Strings Physics 101
- 2. What is a Standing Wave? A wave that does not appear to travel. Created by two harmonic waves of equal amplitude, wavelength and frequency, moving in opposite directions.
- 3. Nodes and Antinodes Nodes occur where the amplitude is always zero. Node Node NodeNode
- 4. Nodes and Antinodes Antinodes occur where the amplitude moves between -2A and 2A, the maximum amplitude. (A amplitude of constituent harmonic waves) Antinode Antinode
- 5. 4 2 3 4 5 4 2 2 Node to Node Antinode to Antinode Nodes and Antinodes Consecutive nodes and consecutive antinodes are 2 (half a wavelength) apart
- 6. The distance between a node and the nearest antinode is 4 . Nodes and Antinodes 4 2 3 4 5 4 4 Antinode to Node 4 Node to Antinode
- 7. Frequency of Standing Waves on Strings = = = = m = mode number (1, 2, 3, ) (see next slide) v = wave speed = wavelength L = length of string T = tension of the string M = mass of string Recall that is the linear mass density of the string .
- 8. Normal Modes Represented as n in the diagram The mode number corresponds to the number of antinodes on the vibrating string A mode of 2 is double the frequency of the fundamental frequency (n = 1) The relationship between the first harmonic and other harmonics is represented by this equation: = m is a positive integer > 0
- 9. Harmonics/Resonant Frequencies The allowed frequencies represented by the equation: = In lab 5, you found the fundamental frequency, the lowest frequency that results in a single antinode at its maximum frequency. Knowing the fundamental frequency, we can find the harmonics/resonant frequencies.

The tension of the string is equal to the weight of a 36kg mass on the moon. A) Imagine that the standing wave is produced by two harmonic waves of equal amplitude, wavelength, and frequency travelling opposite directions. What would be the amplitude of the two constituent waves? B) Write an equation to represent the amplitude of the standing wave. C) What is the distance between a node and the nearest antinode? D) What is the wave speed in the string? E) What is the fifth harmonic?

A) Imagine that the standing wave is produced by two harmonic waves of equal amplitude, wavelength, and frequency travelling opposite directions. What would be the amplitude of the two constituent waves? The amplitude of the standing wave is double the amplitude of the constituent wave. 2A = 8mm A = 4mm

The tension of the string is equal to the weight of a 36kg mass on the moon. C) What is the distance between a node and the nearest antinode? The location of the nodes are at: x = 0, 5 , 2 5 , The location of the first antinode is at: 4 = 2 (4)5 = 10 We can find the distance between any node the nearest antinode by finding the distance between the first node and antinode. The first node is at x = 0 The first antinode is at x = 10 10 - 0 =
