Throughout this chapter, we have been studying traveling waves, or waves that transport energy from one place to another.
The learning objectives in this section will help your students master the following standards:. In addition, the High School Physics Laboratory Manual addresses content in this section in the lab titled: Waves, as well as the following standards:. Most waves do not look very simple. They look more like the waves in Figure The horizontal waves in the picture bounce off the wall of the lake seen in the front part of the picture. These superimpose or combine with waves moving in a different direction.
Standing wave , also called stationary wave , combination of two waves moving in opposite directions, each having the same amplitude and frequency. The phenomenon is the result of interference; that is, when waves are superimposed, their energies are either added together or canceled out. In the case of waves moving in the same direction, interference produces a traveling wave. For oppositely moving waves, interference produces an oscillating wave fixed in space. A vibrating rope tied at one end will produce a standing wave , as shown in the figure; the wave train line B , after arriving at the fixed end of the rope, will be reflected back and superimposed on itself as another train of waves line C in the same plane.

Chapter 16 Superposition and Standing Waves Conceptual Problems
As we saw in the last section, when waves have the same frequency, it is possible for them to interfere completely, either destructively or constructively. Waves of the same frequency that interfere can be generated by propagating waves along a string, as the reflected waves from the end of the string will have the same frequency as, and interfere with, the original waves. The standing wave is named this way because it does not appear to propagate along the string. Instead, each point on the string will oscillate with an amplitude that depends on where the point is located along on the string. In contrast, for a traveling wave, all of the points oscillate with the same amplitude.
A standing wave pattern is a vibrational pattern created within a medium when the vibrational frequency of the source causes reflected waves from one end of the medium to interfere with incident waves from the source. This interference occurs in such a manner that specific points along the medium appear to be standing still. Because the observed wave pattern is characterized by points that appear to be standing still, the pattern is often called a standing wave pattern.

16.7: Standing Waves and Resonance
Most waves do not look very simple. They look more like the waves in Figure Most waves appear complex because they result from two or more simple waves that combine as they come together at the same place at the same time—a phenomenon called superposition. Waves superimpose by adding their disturbances; each disturbance corresponds to a force, and all the forces add. If the disturbances are along the same line, then the resulting wave is a simple addition of the disturbances of the individual waves, that is, their amplitudes add. The two special cases of superposition that produce the simplest results are pure constructive interference and pure destructive interference. Pure constructive interference occurs when two identical waves arrive at the same point exactly in phase.
An Interactive JAVA environment to allow one to look at the linear superposition of up to four ocean waves of different amplitudes and periods. Direction of travel right or left and the local depth of water can be specified. Students learn definitions of wavelength, wave speed, wave amplitude, and wave period. Waves reflection and standing waves can also be explored. Here is a beginning sample activity that can be used with this Applet.
In physics , a standing wave , also known as a stationary wave , is a wave which oscillates in time but whose peak amplitude profile does not move in space. The peak amplitude of the wave oscillations at any point in space is constant with time, and the oscillations at different points throughout the wave are in phase. The locations at which the absolute value of the amplitude is minimum are called nodes , and the locations where the absolute value of the amplitude is maximum are called antinodes. Standing waves were first noticed by Michael Faraday in Faraday observed standing waves on the surface of a liquid in a vibrating container. This phenomenon can occur because the medium is moving in the opposite direction to the wave, or it can arise in a stationary medium as a result of interference between two waves traveling in opposite directions.

Спидометр показывал 60 миль в час. До поворота еще минуты две. Он знал, что этого времени у него. Сзади его нагоняло такси. Он смотрел на приближающиеся огни центра города и молил Бога, чтобы он дал ему добраться туда живым.
ВР начала неистово мигать, когда ядро захлестнул черный поток. Под потолком завыли сирены. - Информация уходит. - Вторжение по всем секторам. Сьюзан двигалась как во сне. Подойдя к компьютеру Джаббы, она подняла глаза и увидела своего любимого человека. Его голос гремел: - Три.
Ну. Беккер кивнул. Уже в дверях он грустно улыбнулся: - Вы все же поосторожнее.
