Problem 18DQ

Energy can be transferred along a string by wave motion. However, in a standing wave on a string, no energy can ever be transferred past a node. Why not?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 18DQ Step 1: Energy can be transferred along a string by wave motion, but in case of standing waves the local energy is transferred between a node and an adjacent antinode and viz versa. Anyhow the average rate of energy transfer is zero at each point.
