Description:

This is a tutorial for high school physics students on the topic of standing waves. It is a highly visual exploration of the topic and includes a brief text explanation of the phenomenon and a set of 16 static diagrams illustrating node and antinode locations for the 1st-5th harmonic. Students may also interactively explore simulations of standing waves on a violin (both ends fixed), a flute (both ends open), and a thumb piano (one end fixed, one end open). This item is part of a larger collection of tutorials developed by the author on a broad range of topics in physics and mathematics.
