Origin

*inverse* + *-ly*

- At barometric pressures such as exist between 18 and 36 kilometres above the ground the mobility of the ions varies
**inversely**as the pressure, whilst the coefficient of recombination a varies approximately as the pressure. - By geometrical consideration it can be shown that the angle subtended by p, as seen from F, must be
**inversely**as the square of its distance r. - The simplest assumption which suffices to express the small deviations of gases and vapours from the ideal state at moderate pressures is that the coefficient a in the expression for the capillary pressure varies
**inversely**as some power of the absolute temperature. - He found that the susceptibility for unit of mass,.K, was independent of both pressure and magnetizing force, but varied
**inversely**as the absolute temperature,. - Being thus
**inversely**proportional to R.
