Hello,if we look at the circuit bellow then we see gamma_g=(50-50)/100=0 gamma_load=(10000-1)/10001=1
at first we have a voltage divider to V=5 and 2.5 is sent to the load.
if the load was only a resistor then i expect 2.5*1 to go toward the generator and never come back because gamma_g=0
but there is a capacitor and resistor on the load.
I cant imagine the coefficient logic in constructing the waveform

Hello delta prime, i have got to the intuition that at first the capacitor is a short circuit and then its charging
so i think i got a direction.
no its not a test its a simulation i did to learn TDR
