Unformatted text preview: Illustrate the reflection and transmission of wave pulses at a boundary Show that standing waves are due to the superposition of two waves and describe them mathematically Explain how a standing wave can be produced in a string or rope and calculate the harmonic frequencies needed to produce standing waves in string instruments. Explain how a standing wave can be produced in a wind instrument open at both ends or closed at one end and calculate the frequencies produced by a pipe of a given length....
