- TL;DR Summary
- Derivation of reflection coefficient?

I am interested in the physics of ground penetrating radar.

1) Does anyone know where I can find a derivation of the formula in the attached jpg for the energy reflected? K=the dialectic constant.

2) An intuitive explanation of why the dialectic constant is important in determining the energy reflected. Obviously it must have something to do with the motion of the free elections.

Thanks in advance
