### resonance

(Learning Modules / Mathematics / Bridges) The build-up of oscillatory, or wave-like, motion in an object such as a plucked guitar string or the deck of a suspension bridge in a wind. The control of such motion requires the removal, or absorption, of the energy of the wave, preventing its build-up.

### Resonance

[particle physics] In particle physics, a resonance is the peak located around a certain energy found in differential cross sections of scattering experiments. These peaks are associated with subatomic particles (such as nucleons, delta baryons, upsilon mesons) and their excitations. The width of the resonance (Γ) is related to the lifetim...

### Resonance

1) The effect produced when the natural vibration frequency of a body is greatly amplified by reinforcing vibrations at the same or nearly the same frequency from another body.
2) The prolonging of the sound at a certain frequency and the tendency of something to vibrate at a particular frequency after the source of energy is removed.

### Resonance

The resonant frequency of a system is defined as the frequency for which the response of the system is a maximum. If the excitation frequency is either increased or decreased the amplitude of response will decrease. See also: Anti Resonance, Quality Factor, Resonant Frequency.

### resonance

In the context of chemistry, the term refers to the representation of the electronic structure of a molecular entity in terms of contributing structures. Resonance among contributing structures means that the wavefunction is represented by 'mixing' the wavefunctions of the contributing structures. The concept is the basis of the quantum mechanical ...

### resonance

Description of the ground state of a molecule with delocalized electrons as an average of several Lewis structures. The actual ground state doesn't switch rapidly between the separate structures: it is an average.
