Unformatted text preview: The wave velocity on the light string is twice that on the heavy string. You are given the shape and position of either the reflected or the transmitted pulse. Draw and label the shape and position of the other (transmitted or reflected) pulse at the same instant. You will need to think about and sketch the incoming pulse because the reflected may have been inverted. Do not concern yourself with amplitude. The first one is done as an example. Heavy end Light end reflected pulse transmitted pulse reflected pulse transmitted pulse transmitted pulse incoming pulse...
