Refractometers are instruments which are used to measure the angle of refraction, which is the degree to which light changes its direction. They help in the measuring of the concentration of aqueous solutions. Refractometers can also measure the concentration of solid substances in different fluids or water. In addition, refractors can determine the speed of refracted light when it passes through a fluid sample and can analyse or report it using various scales. With the help of these values, refractometers help determine the concentration of different solutions as each solution can a have different refractive index depending upon its concentration in water.
