Bell Labs Wave Machine: Matched Impedance

Three segments of the Bell Labs Wave Machine are connected together. The points at which they are connected have the same impedance. Therefore, traveling waves will not be reflected at these boundaries. One can also observe the change in wavelength and velocity as waves travel from high impedance to low impedance and vice versa.
