STANDING WAVES. Nodes. Antinodes. The distance between adjacent antinodes is λ /2. The distance between adjacent nodes is λ /2. The distance between a node and an adjacent antinode is λ /4. FIXED ENDS. fundamental/1 st harmonic. 2nd harmonic. Normal modes. 3rd harmonic.
The distance between adjacent nodes is λ/2.
The distance between a node and
an adjacent antinode is λ/4.

An oscillating system is in resonance with some
driving force whenever the frequency of the driving
force matches one of the natural frequencies
of the system; the system responds with a large A.
How might a pulse change shape
if the phase velocity is not constant,
but depends on frequency?
