Standing microwaves

This practical requires a '3cm' microwave transmitter and probe receiver not uncommon in schools and colleges. If the apparatus is available it is a very
quick and easy way for students to measure wavelength from standing waves. The uncertainty analysis is possibly the simplest of all A level practicals. 
It is possible to use an oscilloscope to locate the nodes and antinodes but really only if it was necessary to ensure that students can use an oscilloscope. For finding wavelengths, a multi-meter works just as well.
An alternative standing waves practical using string is available from the menu on the left.
