## Homework Statement

Ok, so I am doing As physics at the moment and have been left confused by stationary waves.

I have read that between adjacent nodes/ even numbers the phase difference is always 0 and between numbers of does it is pi radians. So in the attatched image why is my textbook giving answers of 180, 225 and 0 degrees: this is what would be the case on a progressive wave, right?

Also, do stationary waves only form where 2 progressive waves in opposite directions have the same frequency, wavelength and constant phase difference, or only a few of the named conditions needed?

Thanks everyone
