Refractometer Uses in Industry and Selection

Refractometer Uses in Industry and Selection

Refractometer Uses in Industry and Selection By Angelo DePalma, PHD A refractometer characterizes fluids based on their refractive index –the refraction occurs due to the change in the speed of light as it travels through a material of one density to one of different density. By definition a vacuum has a refractive index of 1,
