What does the formation of a standing wave require?
A standing wave requires a relative motion of the medium at the same velocity of the wave ...

what condition is essential for the formation of a standing wave?
The progressive wave has to meet its own reflected wave. So both have same amplitude, wavelength. Hence standing waves become possible. ...

When an incoming wave combines with a reflected wave in such a way that the combined wave appears to be standing still the result is a?
When an incoming wave combines with a reflected wave in such a way that the combined wave appears to be standing still the result is a standing still wave. ...
What is a wave that requires a medium through which to travel?
A mechanical wave such as a sound wave requires a medium to travel through. ...

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. ...
How is a progressive wave different from a standing wave?
A progressive wave propagates in a medium in a direction. While a standing or stationary wave is formed by interference of two opposite progressive waves. ...
The frequency at which a standing wave occurs is called the?
fundamental frequency or normal mode. also harmonics are standing waves that combine two standing waves and the fundamental to create a secondary standing wave. ...
