15-14 Chapter 15 (c) For this 3rd harmonic, /2 118 Hz f ω π == 31 3 f f = so 1 (118 Hz)/3 39.3 Hz f EVALUATE: The wavelength and frequency of the standing wave equals the wavelength and frequency of the two traveling waves that combine to form the standing wave. The n th harmonic has n node-to-node segments and the node-to-node distance is /2, λ so the relation between L and for the n th harmonic is ( Ln =/ 2 ).
