Sentence Examples


  • Suddenly, I felt a vibration in my back pocket!
  • The disturbance, consisting of transverse vibrations, is propagated outwards in all directions from the centre; and, in consequence of the symmetry, the direction of vibration in any ray lies in the plane containing the ray and the axis of symmetry; that is to say, the direction of vibration in the scattered or diffracted ray makes with the direction of vibration in the incident or primary ray the least possible angle.
  • Suppose, for distinctness of statement, that the primary ray is vertical, and that the plane of vibration is that of the meridian.
  • If the primary ray is unpolarized, the light scattered north and south is entirely due to that component which vibrates east and west, and is therefore perfectly polarized, the direction of its vibration being also east and west.
  • Similarly any other ray scattered horizontally is perfectly polarized, and the vibration is performed in the horizontal plane.
