I

IN PHASE

Applied to the condition that exists when two waves of the same frequency pass through their maximum and minimum values of like polarity at the same instant [2].


IN-CIRCUIT METER

A meter permanently installed in a circuit; used to monitor circuit operation [3].

INCIDENT WAVE

(1) The wave that strikes the surface of a medium. (2) The wave that travels from the sending end to the receiving end of a transmission line [10].


INCOHERENT

Refers to radiation on a broad band of frequencies [17].

INDEX OF REFRACTION

The degree of bending of an RF wave when passing from one medium to
another [18].


INDICATOR

Equipment in radar that provides a visual presentation of target position information [18].

INDIRECTLY HEATED CATHODE

Same as the directly heated cathode with one exception: The hot filament raises the temperature of the sleeve around the filament; the sleeve then becomes the electron emitter [6].


INDUCED CHARGE

An electrostatic charge produced on an object by the electric field that surrounds a nearby object [1].


INDUCED CURRENT

Current caused by the relative motion between a conductor and a magnetic field [1].


INDUCED ELECTROMOTIVE FORCE

The electromotive force induced in a conductor because of the relative motion between the conductor and a magnetic field [1].
