AT&T Archives: Similarities of Wave Behavior

In this video from the AT&T Archives Dr. J.N. Shive of Bell Labs demonstrates and discusses the following aspects of wave behavior:

  • Reflection of waves from free and clamped ends
  • Superposition
  • Standing waves and resonance
  • Energy loss by impedance mismatching
  • Reduction of energy loss by quarter-wave and tapered-section transformers 1
