We study the effect of back reaction on the energy loss of light quarks in strongly coupled supersymmetric Yang–Mills (SYM) plasma, by using the AdS/CFT correspondence. We perform the analysis within falling string and shooting string approaches, respectively. It is shown that the back reaction, arising from the presence of static heavy quarks uniformly distributed over SYM, enhances the energy loss, in agreement with the findings of the drag force and jet quenching parameter.
