Bell Labs Wave Machine: Standing Waves

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added almost 4 years ago | 00:01:16 | 15073 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...

A single pulse creates two waves of one-half amplitude. When the waves pass each other they add constructively to create the original pulse.

Bell Labs Wave Machine: Reflection

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added almost 4 years ago | 00:01:00 | 15564 views

Pulses are created on the Bell Labs apparatus and reflections from the opposite end are observed. Initially, the ends of the apparatus are left open and the reflections have positive polarity. When one end is fixed, reflections have ne...
