(physics) the point of maximum displacement in a periodic system
a place of maximum displacement
a point on a standing wave of maximum amplitude
a point where the string has maximum motion
The point on a wave of greatest displacement. - The speed of light. A fixed constant - 3x10 ms - beyond which nothing of mass can be accelerated. This principle is used extensively in Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity.
For a particular mode of vibration, a line around the bell parallel to the rim, or a line from rim to crown, where the amplitude of the vibration is maximum. See also nodal circle and nodal line.
in a standing wave pattern, a point that vibrates with the greatest amplitude, halfway between each pair of nodes
A point of maximum displacement in a standing wave.
A point in a standing wave where certain characteristics of the wave field have maximum amplitude.
The points midway between nodes on a standing wave, where the oscillations are largest.
