Describing how to make a standing wave?

  1. Mar 2, 2015 #1
    I'm struggling in physics class, and I really need help with this question. "If you are holding a spring in your hand and making waves, describe how to make a standing wave at the 2nd resonance frequency (next frequency over the fundamental). Include a sketch with your answer."

    What does this even mean?! I have not attempted this question because I do not understand it.
