## Question:

A string is vibrated, with a wave that has a wavelength of 6 meters. How long is 1 loop of the standing wave?

## Standing Waves

A wave is an organized propagation of a disturbance. It is organized in the sense that the propagation is governed by a definite mathematical condition- the wave should obey the classical wave equation. As the wave propagates it will set the medium along its propagation path into the disturbance. The particles of the medium are triggered into oscillations. The distance traveled by the wave by the time source has completed one oscillation is called the wavelength. The time taken for one oscillation is the time period. So clearly the ratio of the wavelength to the time period must be the velocity of propagation.
