Mathematics of a Standing Wave • Superposition of a wave and its own reflected wave: Frequencies and amplitudes are equal. D 1 ( x , t ) = D M sin( kx ! ! t ) D 2 ( x , t ) = D M sin( kx + t ) D = D 1 + D 2 = D M sin( kx ! t ) + sin( kx + t ) [ ] D = 2 D M sin( kx )cos( t ) amplitude simple harmonic motion (think spring) D = A ( x t )

Wed worksheet: 2f • What is the AMPLITUDE of a point located at x = 0.12 cm? amplitude A ( x ) = (8 cm )sin(3 x ) A ( x = 0.12 cm ) = (8 cm )sin(3 ! 0.12 cm ) A = 2.82 cm D 1 ( x , t ) = 4 cm sin(3 x ! 2 t ) D 2 ( x , t ) = 4 cm sin(3 x + 2 t ) D 1 + 2 ( x , t ) = 8 cm sin(3 x )cos(2 t )

Standing Waves, Resonance Wave interfering with its own reflected wave. If the frequency is b just right ` , constructive and destructive interference will lead to a wave pattern that is fixed in space = standing wave . – standing wave moves up and down, NOT left to right Certain wavelengths will fit inside a given L. Thus certain frequencies are allowed à these are called the resonant frequencies of the object (strings, open or closed tubes, boxes. ..).
