## Reflection Coefficient Formula

RC = (Zl-Zo)/(Zl+Zo)

Variables:

- RC is the Reflection Coefficient ()
- Zl is the load impedance (ohms)
- Zo is the characteristic impedance (ohms)

To calculate Reflection Coefficient, divide the difference between then load and characteristic impedance by the sum of those impedance.

## How to Calculate Reflection Coefficient?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Reflection Coefficient.

- First, determine the load impedance (ohms).
- Next, determine the characteristic impedance (ohms).
- Next, gather the formula from above = RC = (Zl-Zo)/(Zl+Zo).
- Finally, calculate the Reflection Coefficient.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

load impedance (ohms) = 76

characteristic impedance (ohms) = 34
