Title: Rflection of a wave
Post by: koveras00 on October 19, 2004, 01:15:21 am
I realized that when a wave reflects(bounces) off a hard surface, it nudergoes a phase change of 'pie'. But i cannot visualize it. Anyone can help me?? Thanks alot....

The page

is the best that I have come across for visualizations of phase changes upon reflection.

If a linear object attached to an oscillator bobs back and forth within the water, it becomes a source of straight waves. These straight waves have alternating crests and troughs. These waves will travel through the water until they encounter an obstacle - such as the wall of the tank or an object placed within the water.
