In physics, a standing wave – also known as a stationary wave – is a wave in a medium in which each point on the axis of the wave has an associated constant amplitude. The locations at which the amplitude is minimum are called nodes, and the locations where the amplitude is maximum are called antinodes.

Dear Ganesh,

We request not to approve the same answer posted by second student as this will be of no value addition to Forum and to any other user. Also, each approval has some value attached to it which will lost its true meaning if given to same answer.

However, if you find some different answer from another user which you also like then you can surely give approval second time in same question as well.

Lets make this forum actually useful to all students worldwide who are preparing for Engineering and Medical

Thanks
