# When Longitudinal Wave is Incident at the Boundary of Denser Medium - HSC Science (General) 12th Board Exam - Physics

ConceptReflection of Transverse and Longitudinal Waves

#### Question

When longitudinal wave is incident at the boundary of denser medium, then............................

1. compression reflects as a compression.
2. compression reflects as a rarefaction.
3. rarefaction reflects as a compression.
4. longitudinal wave reflects as transverse wave.

#### Solution

(a) compression reflects as a compression

A compression is reflected as a compression at the boundary of a denser medium, but it is reflected as a rarefaction at the boundary of a rarer medium.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
