- "There are two types of wave propagation: longitudinal and transverse. An example of the former is the guitar string, which creates sound waves."
- You're right. The way the wave is propogated is by a transverse vibration. The wave itself is longitudinal. I'll fix it. 188.8.131.52 16:49, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
Requires Good Amount Of Cleaning Up
This article needs some major cleanup. It doesn't explain the idea of nodes/antinodes well, nor how they are formed. It does not talk about how the nodes relate to the natural frequency of an object, nor interference patterns. There should also be information pertaining to the superposition principle, and the resonant lengths. I could go on and on. Work on this article please!! 184.108.40.206 16:53, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
- "In transmission lines a voltage node is a current antinode, and a voltage antinode is a current node."
The article currently asserts that antinodes occur "midway" between nodes, which I interpret to be exactly halfway between them. But this assertion seems intuitively true only for symmetric waves. In fact, I think that I can construct a counterexample to this claim. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 07:51, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
