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.

1. First, determine the voltage of the reflected wave (volts).
2. Next, determine the voltage of the incident wave (volts).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = RC = Vr / Vi.
4. Finally, calculate the Reflection Coefficient.
5. 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 = ?
