Standing Wave and Harmonic Motions

A tube of air is open at only one end and has a length of 1.5 m. This tube sustains a standing wave at its third harmonic. What is the distance between one node and the adjacent antinode?

Solution Summary

This solution contains a diagram representing the harmonic motion of the air in the tube and contains step-by-step calculations to determine the distance between anode and an antinode.
