The distance between a node and an anti-node for a transverse wave is equal to

Answer Details

In a transverse wave, nodes are the points that do not move while the anti-nodes are the points of maximum displacement. The distance between a node and an adjacent anti-node is equal to one-fourth of the wavelength. This is because, in one complete cycle of the wave, there is one node and one anti-node, and the distance between them is half a wavelength. Thus, the distance between a node and an anti-node is one-fourth of a wavelength. Therefore, the correct option is "one-fourth of the wavelength."
