Two segments of the Bell Labs apparatus are connected. The segments have different impedance. When a pulse travels from high impedance to low impedance, it is reflected with positive polarity and transmitted with positive polarity. Wh...

Bell Labs Wave Machine: Standing Waves

Bell Labs Wave Machine: Standing Waves

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added over 3 years ago | 00:01:16 | 14797 views

Standing waves are created on the Bell Labs apparatus. The apparatus is "open" at both ends, therefore the number of nodes is equal to the number of overtones. For example, the fourth harmonic will have four nodes, the fifth harmonic w...
