  • The position of maximum displacement in a standing wave system.

    • ‘As the speaker volume increases, the difference between nodes and antinodes becomes easier to hear.’
    • ‘If two of the three indices are zero, then the pressure antinodes of the associated mode form planes.’
    • ‘However, keep in mind that the third transverse mode also has an antinode at the center of the bar.’
    • ‘Very similar to a coffee cup, whose nodes and antinodes are determined by the location of the handle.’
