A standing wave is generated in a 12.0 m wave tank using a frequency of 5.00 Hz. There are a total of four nodes in the standing wave (one on each end of the tank and two others between the ends).
a) Sketch the wave in the tank.
b) What is the velocity of the wave in the tank?
c) What frequency is needed to generate a standing wave with a total of six nodes (one on each end of the tank and four others between the ends)?

    each node is 1/2 wavelength apart, so wavelenth is 24m

    velociy=frequency*wavelength
