Two identical waves ym = 9.8 mm. (a) Find the amplitude of resultant wave when = 100. (13 mm) (b) What phase difference, in radian and wavelengths, will give the resultant wave an amplitude of 4.9 mm. (2.6 rad, 0.42 ) fully constructive fully destructive intermediate y1 ( x, t ) = y m sin(kx - t ) y 2 ( x, t ) = y m sin(kx - t + ) y ( x, t ) = [2 y m cos 1 ] sin(kx - t + 1 ) 2 2 x = kx = 2 Standing Waves y1 ( x, t ) = y m sin(kx - t ) y 2 ( x, t ) = y m sin( kx + t ) Nodes zero amplitude x=n 2 , for n = 0, 1, 2, ... y ( x, t ) = [2 y m sin kx] cos t Antinodes max amplitude 1 x = n + , for n = 0, 1, 2, ... 2 2 Standing Waves and Resonance Reflections Resonance f1 = v 1st harmonic 2 L Fundamental mode v = 2 f1 2nd harmonic L f2 = 3v f3 = = 3 f1 3rd harmonic 2L = 2L , for n = 1, 2, 3, ... n harmonic number n v v fn = = n = nf1 , for n = 1, 2, 3, ... 2L Example Sample Problem 16-8. m = 2.500 g, L = 0.800 m, T = 325.0 N Find wavelength , harmonic number n, and frequency f.
