ratio
quotient of two numbers or two quantities of the same kind

Note 1 to entry: The ratio of two quantities of the same kind is a quantity of dimension one. Examples: transfer ratio, signal-to-noise ratio, transformation ratio.

Note 2 to entry: The ratio a/b MathType@MTEF@5@5@+= feaagKart1ev2aqatCvAUfeBSjuyZL2yd9gzLbvyNv2CaerbbjxAHX garuavP1wzZbItLDhis9wBH5garmWu51MyVXgarqqtubsr4rNCHbGe aGqk0di9Wr=fpeei0di9v8qiW7rqqrVepeea0xe9LqFf0xc9q8qqaq Fn0lXdHiVcFbIOFHK8Feea0dXdar=Jb9hs0dXdHuk9fr=xfr=xfrpe WZqaaeaaciWacmGadaGadeaabaGaaqaaaOqaaiaadggacaGGVaGaam Oyaaaa@3B4D@ is expressed by the words “ratio of a to b”.

Note 3 to entry: For the ratio of two quantities, the term “index” is sometimes used in place of ratio. Examples: refractive index, loss index.

rapport, m
quotient de deux nombres ou de deux grandeurs de même nature

Note 1 à l'article: Le rapport de deux grandeurs de même nature est une grandeur sans dimension. Exemples: rapport de transfert, rapport signal sur bruit, rapport de transformation.
