Students will learn how standing waves form through constructive interference and how to solve standing wave problems where either both ends are constrained or neither of the ends are constrained.
This video ties the concepts of electromagnetic waves (microwaves) and standing waves. Did you know you can figure out the wavelength and energy of the microwaves by melting cheese?
Determining harmonic (resonant) wavelengths using the equation λ[n] = 2L/n or λ[n ] = λ/n
Determining harmonic (resonant) frequencies using the equation f[n] = nv / 2L or f[n ]=nf
Identifying and counting nodes in a standing wave
Identifying and counting antinodes in a standing wave
Calculate the frequency and wavelength of standing waves in a variety of media.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Standing Waves.
Shows how wave appearances change with different factors, such as frequency and amplitude.
This study guide gives an overview of mechanical waves and the characteristics of transverse waves and longitudinal waves. It also looks at wave interaction: interference (constructive and destructive), beat frequency, standing wave, resonance, and the Doppler effect.
These flashcards help you study important terms and vocabulary from Standing Waves.
