WHAT DOES ISOTROPIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

isotropic

Isotropy

Isotropy is uniformity in all orientations; it is derived from the Greek isos and tropos. Precise definitions depend on the subject area. Exceptions, or inequalities, are frequently indicated by the prefix an, hence anisotropy. Anisotropy is also used to describe situations where properties vary systematically, dependent on direction. Isotropic radiation has the same intensity regardless of the direction of measurement, and an isotropic field exerts the same action regardless of how the test particle is oriented.

Definition of isotropic in the English dictionary

The definition of isotropic in the dictionary is having uniform physical properties in all directions. Other definition of isotropic is not having predetermined axes.
