At a point C, where h became equal to u2/g, the conditions for producing the standing wave occurred.
A standing wave is frequently produced at the foot of a weir.
The formation of a standing wave was first observed by Bidone.
In the former case the fall is followed by a rapid, terminating in a standing wave.
A standing wave is sometimes formed on the down stream side of bridges the piers of which obstruct the flow of the water.
Now one ear seemed muted by a temporary difference of air pressure where a standing wave lingered for a second or two.
|standing wave |
A wave that oscillates in place, without transmitting energy along its extent. Standing waves tend to have stable points, called nodes, where there is no oscillation. Examples of standing waves include the vibration of a violin string and electron orbitals in an atom. Also called stationary wave. See also harmonic oscillator.
