Example sentences of the word angle-of-refraction


1. Noun Phrase
The angle of refraction in a particular medium is defined by its index of refraction, which is a property derived by dividing the speed of light in a vacuum by the speed of light in that particular medium.

2. Noun Phrase
With the two distances that you measured in Step 3, you can calculate the angle at which the beam hit the wall -- in other words, its angle of refraction after passing through the prism.

3. Noun Phrase
When light passes from one medium to another, the angle of refraction can be derived by dividing the indices of refraction of the two media.

4. Noun Phrase
