In the current experiment, we will observe and quantify the speed of propagating electromagnetic waves on the cable. Furthermore, the waves are also reflected whenever they encounter a change in the medium, such as when the cable makes contact with a dissimilar component. This reflection is indeed similar to how light bounces off as it hits the interface between two mediums with distinct refractive indices.
