Waves

Standing wave in an open-ended pipe

Product Code: OPT0005

Price: 4 USD ( Order Form )

Files: 12 movies (576 X 288 pixels).  Each movie is provided in AVI and Quicktime format.

Description:  

Interference between two waves traveling in opposite directions produces a standing wave. These videos show the first 6 modes of vibration of a standing wave in tube open at both ends. For each mode of vibration, a first movie shows the two moving waves (green and cyan) and the standing wave (yellow); a second animation show the standing wave only.  It is the displacement wave, not the pressure wave (there is an antinode at both ends).  The wave is shown as a transverse wave for more simplicity.
