How should I define the boundary conditions of free end and fixed end scenarios for 1D Wave Equation?

The 1D wave equation is $$\frac{\partial^2 u(x,t)}{\partial t^2} = c^2 \frac{\partial^2 u(x,t)}{\partial x^2}$$ where $c$ is the wave speed, $c^2=E/\rho$, $E$ is the Young's modulus and $\rho$ is the ...
