Our findings were confirmed when JAXA's Akatsuki spacecraft was inserted into orbit around Venus and immediately spotted the biggest stationary wave ever observed in the Solar System on Venus' dayside.
So, the stationary semi wave between (g) and (b) disappears, being replaced by a progressive wave, as long as between (b) and the need of the line (r), the stationary wave will persist.
2]) (settled at 3/4 [lambda]) is open, all other taps being closed, now in (c) point, the pressure variation is always zero, none energy will be absorbed by the engine, and the stationary wave will persist in the entire length of the pipe.
c) If the engine is connected at the intermediate point, a part from the energy will be absorbed by the engine, or stationary wave will persist with reduced amplitude between the generator (g) and engine, the liquid state between it could be considered as result of two overlapped waves: one stationary wave and one progressive wave.
4 has depicted the block diagram for phonic-absorbent measurement by stationary waves with Kundt tub.
w] used stationary waves and Kundt tub is approximately, such as other methods, but has the advantage of small size.
