Reflections at a Boundary

• Hard reflection : A pulse incident from the right is reﬂected at the left end of the string, which is tied to a wall. Note that the reﬂected pulse is inverted from the incident pulse
• Soft reflection :Here the left end of the string is tied to a ring that can slide without friction up and down the rod. Now the pulse is not inverted by the reﬂection.
