Hello, I've been working out this question but I'm not sure about the answer. It relates to waves, which is something I've yet to deal with in school. It says: When you disturb a guitar string you'll create a standing wave in its fundamental sound. Three students draw the shape of the string and different instances, as shown by the graph(...see attachment?), admitting that the string vibrates in its fundamental sound (...fundamental frequency?). Out of these figures, the correct one is... a. 3, because nodes are formed at the ends of the string b. 1 and 2, because the represent the initial wave and its reflection c. 2 and 3, because the fulfill the conditions of the fundamental mode d. only 1, because it's the only one that shows a complete wavelength (I just translated this --no quick-translator, mind you-- so pardon me if some terms are a bit off --I did research some, like standing wave and wavelength, though...) Now, after doing some research on the net and reading my Wilson's physics for a bit, I had come to the conclusion that you can't appreciate a complete wavelength on the firs graph... I though wavelength was the distance between two antinodes, but alas, it seems it isn't... I've found somewhere else that wavelength is actually node-to-node. What's the correct form? a. doesn't mean anything . That leaves b and c (and... d?). Since a guitar string can have various harmonics, both would be partially correct... however, I've come to the conclusion that the first graph is incorrect! It's not a complete harmonic (it should look like two horizontal ovals, right?). That'd leave c, right? I'm not too sure, and that's why I'm asking So, I'd appreciate if you folks could help me. Thanks in advance.
