Two waves of equal period, wavelength, and amplitude, travelling through the same medium, approach and are superposed. Since there are points where the waves are always out of phase, points where the medium does not oscillate are created. The points where the waves have the capability to be perfectly in sync have the greatest oscillation.
Terminology Nodes: points of no oscillation Antinodes: points of maximum oscillation

Harmonics and Overtones Each standing wave pattern is produced at a unique frequency Smallest frequency: 1 st Harmonic (fundamental)
Harmonics and Overtones Subsequent harmonics produced by integer multiples of the fundamental Overtones refer to harmonics other than the fundamental

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
