Transcript of Stand and Wave

Stand and Wave An original game by
Paige Burnett What is a "standing wave"? The Physics of Standing Waves The Challenge A standing wave is a wave that while in motion appears to be standing still or flipping. Scientifically speaking, standing waves occur when waves are inputted at the same frequency and they will interfere with one another constructively and destructively to create the illusion of the wave standing still. This Minute to Win it challenge will be as follows:
It is your job to create a standing wave with five anti-nodes that lasts for at least 5 seconds. Step 1: Find a partner who will hold the other end of the slinky still
Step 2: Take hold of the other end and move it up and down to create a pulse
Step 3: 60 seconds to create a standing wave with five anti-nodes Parts of a wave: Node: The point at which a harmonic function has the value zero. Anti-node: The points that undergo the maximum displacement during each vibrational cycle of the standing wave. Mathematics of Standing Waves Standing waves can occur in many different shapes, those being the various harmonics. For every node you add you add another 1 didget to the numerator of the formula given
