+ -i noun suffix.
To alter the course of a wave of light, sound, etc. when the wave crosses the boundary between this medium and another through which it travels at a different speed.
From L. refractus, p.p. of refringere, → refraction.
Verb of šekast, → refraction.
partow-e šekasté (#)
Fr.: rayon réfracté
A → light ray that undergoes a change of velocity and direction, as a result of interaction with the material medium in which it travels.

1) Optics: The change of direction which a beam of light undergoes as it
enters a medium of different → refractive index.
From L.L. refractionem (nominative refractio) "a breaking up," from L. refractus, p.p. of refringere "to break up," from re- "back" + combining form of frangere "to break," from PIE base *bhreg- "to break" (cf. Goth. brikan, O.E. brecan "to break;" Lith. brasketi "crash, crack").

Fr.: indice de réfraction
Of any optical medium, the ratio of the → speed of light in vacuum (c) to that in the medium (v): n = c/v. The refractive index for vacuum, by definition, is 1. The refractive index of air is 1.00029 at standard temperature (25 °C) and pressure (1 atm). The refractive index of a medium depends on the wavelength of refracted wave. With light waves, n increases as the wavelength decreases. → Snell's law can be used to derive n. Same as → index of refraction.
Same as → refracting telescope.
Agent noun of refract, → refraction.
From refract, → refraction + adj. suffix -ory.
