Besides, the two antinodes have the same amplitude for warm winters unlike for cold and all winters, which reinforces the concept of a pure wavenumber-1 mode.
In order to obtain the best possible response, the excitation should be localized in the neighborhood of the antinode of the mode under investigation.
Once a resonance is excited within the equipment cavity, a potentially very high field strength may be achieved at an antinode in the standing wave pattern.
In the end, those crazy kids at fashion week are the peaks or antinodes in a standing wave, while all of us normal-looking civilians are nodes in the same wave.
It is well known that the amplitude ratio of forward and backward propagating mode determines the amplitude of the antinodes.
p and q denote the number of antinodes of the electric field in the x and y direction, respectively), where the electric field is polarized mainly along the x direction, are equivalent to TE modes in Fig.
Not that they exist elsewhere, beyond our grasp, but because we are experiences, that is, thoughts that feel behind themselves the weight of the space the time, the very Being they think, and which therefore do not hold under their gaze a serial space and time nor the pure idea of series, but have about themselves a time and a space that exist by piling up, by proliferation, by encroachment, by promiscuity--a perpetual pregnancy, perpetual parturition, generativity and generality, brute essence and brute existence, which are the nodes and antinodes of the same ontological vibration.
Cutting wedges of grinding wheel are positioned in resonance ultrasound wave systems antinodes of longitudinal stagnancy oscillation.
A photon is a unit (packet) of energy from standing half waves at the antinodes where the speed of light is relative to infinity and mass is part of infinity.
Studies on seiches confirm that the largest movements are formed when the period of the shock waves matches approximately the same period as one of the seiche modes or frequency of oscillation of the body of water, and complex stationary waves have several nodes and antinodes.
