Why do standing waves have nodes?

Nodes are locations where waves are canceled by interference.

In a standing wave what kind of interference produces the crests and the nodes?


Constructive interference occurs when the amplitudes of two waves combine to produce a wave with a smaller amplitude?

It's called Constructive. (:Just found the answer.

What do standing waves do?

Standing waves (sometimes called stationary waves) are the result of interference between two progressive wave systems. They can occur in anything from flowing water to optical systems to transmission lines. Points of negative interference are called nodes and points of the wave crests and troughs central between nodes are called antinodes. At certain frequencies (resonances), the nodes will become stationary, and the wave appears not to move. What they do is a broader question, but one (of very many examples) would be the sound created by a stinged musical instrument, which depends on standing waves to produce its sound.

A uninodal standing wave has how many nodes?

In a uninodal (single-node standing wave) wave, there is one node and two anti-nodes.

What type of wave has points called nodes that do not move?

A Standing Wave is a wave with nodes that do not move.

Nodes and antinodes are part of a n wave?

Nodes and antinodes are part of a standing wave pattern.

What type of waves have nodes that do not move?

standing waves

How does nodes and antinodes form in a standing wave?

A node is a point along a standing wave where the wave has minimal amplitude. The opposite of a node is an antinode, a point where the amplitude of the standing wave is a maximum. These occur midway between the nodes.

Infection in thumb result in enlargment of what node?

Axillary nodes or trochlear nodes.

Is it possible to have interference between wave produced by 2 violins?

No, the phase difference between the nodes produced by two violins is not constant and so the interference is not possible.
