its wavelength and hear the potential answers exceptional in all

00:21

right Well to answer this question let's draw a picture

00:24

We're thinking maybe a t rex running in a marathon

00:27

with queen of england About that or we could draw

00:29

a picture of a standing wave that probably makes more

00:32

sense Be more useful to us So let's take a

00:34

look at a standing way with five nodes in five

00:37

anti notes All right it's no t rex but it's

00:40

kind of cool to look at Way know that the

00:45

wavelength of a standing wave equals the distance between two

00:48

anti notes In this instance there are two point five

00:50

wavelengths on this string Since there are one hundred centimeters

00:55

We just have to do a little division to find

00:57

that the wave length is forty centimeters or answer is

01:00

c Yeah we've got these anti note questions down We're

01:05

crushing them we're making them say uncle sorry we just 00:01:08.816 --> [endTime] couldn't stop ourselves
