Melodrama's refractivity is further underscored in Edgar Soberon Torchia's summary of the film's plot on IMDB some thirty years after its initial release: "In 1830s Habana, amidst the Cuban independence movement, social climber Cecilia Valdes uses santeria to conquer Leonardo Gamboa, the son of a rich colonialist family" (n.
The trilinear model can properly estimate the refractivity M-profile via RFC method.
The molecular refractivity is higher for certain low heat release polymers such as polyimides, phthalonitriles, heavier elements like--chlorine or phosphorous containing polymers, as compared with vinyl-polymers, hence this descriptor has a negative contribution to HRC.
The vector x represents the unknowns for each constant wet refractivity [N.
Medical refractometers designed for human samples use a reference scale based on human urine refractivity and USG.
The two terms in the refractivity N in equation (2) are often separated into dry term D and wet term W:
The evaporation duct height (EDH) has been shown to be a good parameter to describe the profile of the modified refractivity versus height.
In previous equations addressing levelling refraction, the equations were expressed in units of gradient refractivity as a function of the temperature gradient.
