Re: Standing waves

My first thought is: Input power fixed by oscillator amplitude.

Power in wave for constant speed is proportional to n^2 y^2, therefore
at constant power the amplitude drops as 1/n.

satisfactory (see below)?

For identical amplitudes the string would
have to be longer with 9 loops than with
one loop. For a rubber band (of low k) the
amplitudes would not be as different as
for a common string.
