antinode

[′an·tə‚nōd]
(astronomy)
Either of the two points on an orbit where a line in the orbit plane, perpendicular to the line of nodes and passing through the focus, intersects the orbit.
(physics)
A point, line, or surface in a standing-wave system at which some characteristic of the wave has maximum amplitude. Also known as loop.

This latter was maintained stretched between the antinode positions of the first free-free mode.
I've figured out when the peacocking paepi I stop and photograph at Seoul Fashion Week are socially unusual antinodes, who themselves define and are defined by normal, non-peacocking people who are the nodes.
The half waves have two free ends where the antinodes are at the ends and nodes are in the middle such that each half wave keep multiplying indefinitely to complete whole wavelengths where C = f X.
Electro and magnetic waves expand into larger waves from the antinodes (displacement) energy of standing waves at twice the wave amplitude of the smaller wave giving distance to the field.
2] divided by mass is equal to infinite C on the left side of the equation because the wavelengths are open ended at the antinodes.
Note that one doesn't have to have different size particles in a rotating tube to be able to see nodes and antinodes but the segregation of different sized particles makes the results dramatic.
0), indicating that the six highest modes contain 28, 17, 12, 10, 8, and 7 antinodes respectively.
With a rate input, the positions of the nodes and antinodes move around the cylinder wall in the opposite direction to the direction of rotation (Coriolis acceleration).
During vibrations, each pattern of strutting system characteristically has nodes and antinodes at various locations on the body of the guitar.
It is not necessary to consider the differences between s- and p-polarized IR beams since a considerable number of antinodes existed for the IR standing wave within these films (24, 25).
