Figure 5.11: Interference of two identical waves propagating in opposite directions, one in the right direction (light grey) and one in the left direction (dark grey). The resultant wave function (black) corresponds to the standing wave. The resultant wave function has stationary points called nodes and maximum amplitude points called antinodes.
