Video demonstration of a standing wave. The forward-traveling (y1) and reverse-traveling (y2) waves interfere with each other, producing a standing wave (top). Note that in this case, the reverse wave is half the amplitude of the forward wave, giving a VSWR of 3. See how the standing wave no longer appears to "stand" like it would with equal amplitude waves.
