Total Energy in a Rigidly Terminated String
The total energy
in a length
, rigidly terminated, freely
vibrating string can be computed as
for any
. Since the energy never decays,
and
are
also arbitrary. Thus, because free vibrations of a doubly terminated
string must be periodic in time, the total energy equals the
integral of power over any period at any point along the string.
