Expert Answer:

Yes , The sound follows the same laws as laws of reflection of light if the reflector is a plane or a curved surface. In case of open an closed pipes the reflection follows other laws

1. Closed pipe: A pulse of rarefaction will be reflected as a pulse of rarefaction and a pulse of Compression will be reflected as a pulse of rarefaction.
