## Question:

Standing waves are produced in a 10 m long stretched string. If the string vibrates in 5 segments and the wave velocity is 20 {eq}ms^{-1} {/eq} then the frequency is

(a) 2 Hz

(b) 4 Hz

(c) 5 Hz

(d) 10 Hz

## Standing Waves:

Standing waves are waves that move only in time but not in space. In a standing wave, the part of the waveform that does not move (this is usually zero) is called the "node". In contrast, the extrema of the standing wave pattern is called the "anti-node". One real-life example of a standing wave is the vibrations from a plucked guitar string.
