    Hi,

    I found a very useful "wave on a string" app at Phet (Coloardo University site). The app (it run in Flash) shows how waves are reflected back after hitting a fixed end. See http://phet.colorado.edu/sims/wave-on-a-string/wave-on-a-string_en.html

    I am wondering if there is a similar app to illustrate electrical waves being reflected. What I would like to see, specifically, is how different terminating resistors effect the waves.

    Thanks,

    Dave
