The nodes on the given wave-function (a sine wave), #psi#, are at #0^@#, #180^@#, and #360^@# etc. The physical significance of the wave-function of an electron is that its square, #psi^2="the probability of finding the particle"#. (You will have to read your text for the Born approximation! And that's Max Born not Jason Bourne).
