I present here the classical boundary value problem of obliquely incident compressional plane waves impinging the interface between two homogeneous acoustic media. Each incident wave gives rise to reflected and transmitted components satisfying Snell's law. The reflection is usually quantified by the reflection coefficient, simply defined, on each point of the interface, as the ratio of the reflected and incident wave amplitudes.
