This web page presents the physics of resonance of standing waves in a confined space. It is presented as a conversation between a student and a teacher, making it lively to read. There is a simulation that provides an animated illustration of resonance. The relation between the wavelength and the length of the confined space is described. Some practical examples are also cited.
This is part of a tutorial on the physics of microwave ovens and the larger Physics 2000 web site. Physics 2000 introduces some of the results of modern physical science with interactive and engaging web presentations.
