Enter the voltage of the reflected wave (volts) and the voltage of the incident wave (volts) into the Reflection Coefficient Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Reflection Coefficient.

## Reflection Coefficient Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Reflection Coefficient.

**RC = Vr / Vi**

Variables:

- RC is the Reflection Coefficient ( )
- Vr is the voltage of the reflected wave (volts)
- Vi is the voltage of the incident wave (volts)

## How to Calculate Reflection Coefficient?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Reflection Coefficient.

- First, determine the voltage of the reflected wave (volts).
- Next, determine the voltage of the incident wave (volts).
- Next, gather the formula from above = RC = Vr / Vi.
- 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.

voltage of the reflected wave (volts) = 50

voltage of the incident wave (volts) = 30

RC = Vr / Vi** **= ?
