In this standing waves worksheet, students read about standing waves, their nodes, their anti-nodes and their wavelengths. They are given diagrams of harmonics and the equation to find the frequency of harmonics. Students match terms related to standing waves to their definitions, they label a diagram of a standing wave, they calculate frequency and periods of waves and they analyze a graph of a standing wave.

STEMbite: Standing Waves
The casual voice of the filmmaker explains standing waves using a linked chain bordering a neighborhood parking lot, a bucket of blue-colored water, and a rope tied to a fan blade. He uses the appropriate vocabulary (frequency, wavelength, antinode, and resonance), but fails to explain all of the terms.
