Standing Waves

Logo for Standing Waves
(From the author) The following movies show standing waves as the superposition of two sine waves traveling in opposite directions. In each case the fundamental waves are in black and the superposition is shown in blue. Each movie is set up for seamless looping, but you may have to download and play them outside your browser to enable the loop feature.
