## Question:

Which one of the following will form a standing wave:

(1) two waves of the same amplitude and speed moving in the same direction

(2) two waves of the same amplitude and speed moving in the opposite directions,

(3) any two traveling waves can form standing waves if they have the same amplitude

(4) any two traveling waves can form standing waves if they have the same energy.

## Waves

Suppose some disturbance takes place in medium which causes net movement of particles carrying energy. This generates what is called as a wave. The waves may follow a periodic or repetitive motion.
