## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey!

Was just wondering if someone could shed some light on the whole stationary waves thing. I've done about them in my A-Level Physics course and I can't for the life of me figure out what it's about.

I mean, why can you only have a certain number of nodes, hence certain frequencies? And how do you know which frequency you would have in which situation?

If that makes any sense? I'm totally confused, so chances are - it doesn't!

Thanks lots,

Sam
