    I'm not quite sure what AQA want. Does anyone have any graphs that can be used to explain stationary waves?

    Ah, I'm fine with describing how a stationary wave is formed... However when they want you to include a diagram, I'm not sure what to draw.
    What I draw normally is an incident wave striking an object and reflecting and its reflection superposes...then I label the positions on the wave but I'm not sure if thats "appropriate" and what AQA want
