Today, when I was working on my microwave circuits, I suddenly got a question. If we have an ideal inductor/capacitor connected to the RF source (a source with 50 ohm resistor), we will get reflection due to the mismatching effect.

Statement 1): If the inductor/capacitor is not infinit, we will not get a complete reflection.

Statement 2): Since only the resistor can dissipate energy, and the energy will not be dissipated by the inductor/capacitor, we will have a complete reflection in this circuit.

So, anyone has a idea how to solve this confliction?

Thanks,
