Description

"If two sets of progressive waves of the same amplitude and wavelength travel with the same speed through a medium in opposite directions and superpose upon each other, they give rise to what is called stationary or standing waves. In stationary waves there are certain points known as nodes where the amplitude is zero and strain is maximum. Similarly, there are some points known as anti nodes which vibrate about there mean position with largest amplitude. Between nodes and antinodes the amplitude lies between zero and maximum. These waves are called stationary waves because there is no flow of energy along the wave. Stationary or Standing Waves.
