## Wavelength Sentence Examples

- It was a
**wavelength**thing—we just meshed. - The problem of syntonic electric wave telegraphy is then to construct a transmitter and a receiver of such kind that the receiver will be affected by the waves emitted by the corresponding or syntonic transmitter, but not by waves of any other
**wavelength**or by irregular electric impulses due to atmospheric electricity. - As, however, the
**wavelength**necessary to cover any considerable distance must be at least 200 or 300 ft., it becomes impracticable to employ mirrors for reflection. - The refractive index of any substance varies with (1) the
**wavelength**of the light; (2) with temperature; and (3) with the state of aggregation. - In general, we may say that aberration is unimportant when it nowhere (or at any rate over a relatively small area only) exceeds a small fraction of the
**wavelength**(X). - '; To obtain such it would be necessary that the retardation should gradually alter by a
**wavelength**in passing over any element of the grating, and then fall back to its previous value, thus springing suddenly over a wave-length (Phil. - 3 The power of a grating to construct light of nearly definite
**wavelength**is well illustrated by Young's comparison with the production of a musical note by reflection of a sudden sound from a row of palings. - His remarkable result that two waves give some sense of pitch, in fact a tone with
**wavelength**equal to the interval between the waves, has been confirmed by other observers. - Half a
**wavelength**, the frequency in the air is U/2L, where U is the velocity of sound in the pipe. - If D is the measured deviation of a ray, and Do, Xo, c and a are four constants, the equation A=Ao-{ (D - D °) l /a seems to represejlt the connexion between deviation and
**wavelength**with considerable accuracy for prisms constructed with the ordinary media. - In that case the main branch is found to represent the new series if a' and b 1 are also put equal to zero, so that n l r I I N = 4 - y2' where r takes successively the values 1.5, 2.5, 3.5 A knowledge of the constants now determines the trunk series, which should be n I I N - (I,5)2 The least refrangible of the lines of this series should have a
**wavelength**4687.88, and a strong line of this wave-length has indeed been found in the spectra of stars which are made up of bright lines, as also in the spectra of some nebulae. - - Variation of energy of radiation corresponding to
**wavelength**30 µ, with temperature of source. - In so far as the vibrations may be regarded as isochronous, the distance between consecutive corresponding points of the recurrent figure, or, as it may be called, the
**wavelength**of the figure, is directly proportional to the velocity of the jet, i.e. - It is closely related to the coefficient k which we have just defined, the equation connecting the two being k= 4lrK/X,X being the
**wavelength**of the incident light.
