Standing wavedemonstrations take place in many classroom experiments. Different mechanisms areused to excite such a wave. A simple experiment demonstrating the excitement of astanding wave in a metal string is presented here. Several tasks using the set-up areconsidered, which help the students to better understand the standing waves, theinteraction between electric current and magnetic field and the resonance phenomena.
