Two waves traveling in opposite directions meet to Produce Standing Waves. At Nodes The displacement of one wave is +x and for the other wave, it is -x. Both of which cancel to produce a Node. At this point, there is Kinetic Energy & Potential Energy in Both waves.
I am confused with the Part that will the Nodes have Energy. Because adding Kinetic Energy of Both waves at this position will give Kinetic Energy on the Node but we say the Energy of a Node is Zero.
How will the energy at the Nodes Change in different positions of Standing Wave a) When all the points are at their Mean Position. b) When all the Points are at their extreme Position.
I have the understanding that In a standing wave a) When all the points are at their Mean Position all have Varying Kinetic Energies and Zero Potential Energies.
b) When all the points are at their Amplitude Position all have Varying Potential Energies and Zero Kinetic Energies.
Does this Hold for the Nodes also?
