How does the refractive index of a liquid vary with temperature? What corrective factor is often used to determine the value at a specific temperature? For example, 20 degrees C. If the measurement were made at 25 degrees C?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 9:48 pm ad1c9bdddf
(a) Temperature affects the density of a liquid and this in turn affects the refractive index of the liquid. As the temperature increases the ...
A neat and step-wise solution is provided, including a brief discussion on the refractive index as well as simple calculation of the corrective factor.
