Change in amplitude of wave on reflection

  1. May 28, 2006 #1
    When a wave is reflected from a free end or a rigid end, will there be a change in amplitude always?

    What do you think?

    I think Yes.

    You're correct, as far as the magnitude is concerned, assuming NO power loss at the "end".
