Modes of vibration of fixed string
- Ian Barker
Shows the modes of vibration of string fixed at both ends. You can choose the modes by altering the harmonic slider. The trace enables you to see the appearance of the string over a period of time. You can show or hide the markers for the nodes and antinodes. You can also show the waves that are incident and reflected at the right hand boundary. (Roles are reversed at the left hand boundary.)
How many antinodes are there in the nth harmonic
How many nodes are there in the nth harmonic
The nth harmonic is observed on a string of length L. What is the wavelength of the vibrations of the string?
