1 Name __________________________ Date _____________ ID # _____________________Prof. Pascuzzi Physics 131 Standing Waves & Resonance of Sound Waves (SOLUTIONS) Resonant Standing Waves on a String For all standing waves on string, what important relationship exists between the resonant frequencies f of the string and the length L of the string? = where n = the number of antinodes (AN) from the resonant diagrams above. For each diagram, state the type of standing wave shown and write the equation for the resonant frequencies for each. Also write the number of nodes and antinodes. 1) Wave type = Fundamental or 1 st Harmonic # Nodes ( N ) = 2 # Antinodes ( AN ) = 1 1 Resonant frequency = 2) Wave type = 2 nd Harmonic or 1 st Overtone # Nodes ( N ) = 3 # Antinodes ( AN ) = 2 2 Resonant frequency = 3) Wave type = 3 rd Harmonic or 2 nd Overtone # Nodes ( N ) = 4 # Antinodes ( AN ) = 3 3 Resonant frequency = 4) Wave type = 4 th Harmonic or 3 rd Overtone # Nodes ( N ) = 5 # Antinodes ( AN ) = 4 3 Resonant frequency =
