How to use Isotropic in a sentence
The polarization itself is determined from the electric force (P,Q,R) by the usual statical formula of linear type which becomes tor an isotropic medium (.f',g',h') = c2(P,Q,R), because any change of the dielectric constant K arising from the convection of the material through the aether must be independent of the sign of v and therefore be of the second order.
Other names for the circular lines are " circulars " or " isotropic lines."
One possibility is to assume isotropic sky conditions at all times and so simplify computation since diffuse radiation is then independent of direction.
A transversely isotropic material is isotropic about one axis.
This is because the glass is optically isotropic, and does not change the polarization state of the light passing tho it.Advertisement
A standard dipole radiation pattern is not isotropic - it looks bit like a donut with the antenna in place of the hole.
This is nothing at all like our nearly isotropic and homogeneous universe, where each point has a different event horizon.
The emission of most radionuclide neutron sources is not isotropic.
The curve showing the circumferential (or longitudinal) changes was also plotted, and from the two curves thus obtained it was easy, on the assumption that the metal was isotropic in directions at right angles to the magnetization, to calculate changes of volume; for if circumferential elongation be denoted by 1 1, and transverse elongation by 1 2, then the cubical dilatation (40r -) = l l 2/ 2 approximately.
The radiation was isotropic and it corresponded to a temperature that was consistent with red-shifted radiation from the Big Bang.Advertisement
Lower remanent moments are found to be associated with a more isotropic reversal mechanism.
Magnetic induction, like other fluxes such as electrical, thermal or fluid currents, is defined with reference to an area; it satisfies the same conditions of continuity as the electric current does, and in isotropic media it depends on the magnetic force just as the electric current depends on the electromotive force.
Isotropic etchants attack the material equally in all directions and anisotropic etchants attack the material at different rates in different directions.
But the incoming cosmic ray flux, which would otherwise be isotropic, is shaped by the Earth's magnetic field.
The direction of the magnetization is that of the magnetic axis of the element;'in isotropic substances it coincides with the direction of the magnetic force at the point.Advertisement
Hence if the induction per square centimetre at any point is denoted by B, then in empty space B is numerically equal to H; moreover in isotropic media both have the same direction, and for these reasons it is often said that in empty space (and practically in air and other nonmagnetic substances) B and H are identical.
So long as the wire (supposed isotropic) is free from torsional stress, there will be no external evidence of magnetism.
The substance is usually optically isotropic, though sometimes it exhibits anomalous double refraction; fibrous zinc sulphide which is doubly refracting is to be referred to the hexagonal FIG.
He investigated the problem by means of the general differential equations of static equilibrium for dams of triangular and rectangular form considered as isotropic elastic solids.
The phenomena of chromatic polarization afford a ready means of detecting doubly refracting structure in cases, such as that produced in isotropic bodies by strain, in which its effects are very minute.Advertisement
