Exercise 13.16

Part A = 1/2 wavelength

Solution Below:

Part A

For a standing wave on a rope, the distance between two adjacent antinodes is

A. 1/4 wavelength.
B. 1/2 wavelength.
C. one wavelength.
D. two wavelengths.

Remember the nodes are not the amplitudes of the standing wave, they are on either side of a crest/trough at 1/2 wavelength intervals:

B. 1/2 wavelength.
