Sentence Examples


  • So long as the particles are small no such vanishing of light in oblique directions is observed, and we are thus led to the conclusion that the hypothesis of a finite AN and of vibrations in the plane of polarization cannot be reconciled with the facts.
  • In the early stages of the precipitation the polarization is complete in a perpendicular direction, and incomplete in oblique directions.
  • This is the moment to examine whether there is a more complete polarization in a direction somewhat oblique; and it is found that with 0 positive there is, in fact, a direction of more complete polarization, while with 0 negative the polarization is more imperfect than in the perpendicular direction itself.
  • The polarization in a distinctly oblique direction, however, is not perfect, a feature for which more than one reas9n may be put forward.
  • Not only is the oblique direction of maximum polarization more definite and the polarization itself more complete, but the observation is easier than with white light in consequence of the uniformity in the colour of the light scattered in various directions.
