Wave Antinode problem

  1. Mar 5, 2014 #1
    1. Waves traveling along a string have a wavelength of 2.4 m. When the waves reach the fixed end of the string, they are reflected. How far from the end are the first two antinodes?


    2. Not sure what to use



    3. I have no really a clue on what to do, if some one could explain it to me, that would be really helpful.

    What happens at the fixed end of the string? Do you get a node or antinode there?

    Isn't there any specific length for the string given in your textbook???

    Would that make a difference?

    You get a node at the end.

    So if there is a node at the end and the wavelength is 2.4m where will the anti nodes be?
