Hi guys.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question on sonic pressure wave behavior in pipes.

When a pressure wave traversing down a pipe encounters a change in cross-section, namely, a convergence say like that of an expansion chamber, a negative pressure wave is reflected back in the opposite direction. My question is, does the energy of the reflected negative pressure wave proportionally equal the energy that the original wave loses in encountering the convergence?
