Some articles on wave, transmitted wave, waves:
... to total internal reflection, the solution would consist of an incident wave and a reflected wave, with no transmitted wave at all, but there is no such solution that obeys Maxwell's ... and By are satisfied if the reflected wave has the same amplitude as the incident one, because these components of the incident and reflected waves superimpose ... constructively, so there can be no solution without a non-vanishing transmitted wave ...
Famous quotes containing the words wave and/or transmitted:
“Well, from what you tell me I should say that it was not only a landslide but a tidal wave and holocaust all rolled into one general cataclysm.”
—William Howard Taft (18571930)
“What we often take to be family valuesthe work ethic, honesty, clean living, marital fidelity, and individual responsibilityare in fact social, religious, or cultural values. To be sure, these values are transmitted by parents to their children and are familial in that sense. They do not, however, originate within the family. It is the value of close relationships with other family members, and the importance of these bonds relative to other needs.”
—David Elkind (20th century)
