Standing Wave

Standing wave is a wave in a medium during which each point around the axis of the wave has a associated constant amplitude. The locations when the amplitude can be minimum are known as nodes, and the locations the location where the amplitude is maximum are called antinodes. The commonest cause of standing waves is the phenomenon of resonance, in which standing waves occur inside a resonator due to be able to interference between waves reflected between the two at the resonator’s resonant frequency.
