## Question:

If the frequency of a standing wave is 485 Hz, how far apart are the two adjacent nodes? The speed of waves on a string is 97 m/s.

## Standing waves

In wave mechanics, a standing wave is a type of wave that does not move in space. This means that the position of nodes are fixed point in space. Such waves are observed in string waves where one or both ends are attached to a fixed point.
