# i need the axis is something in the mathematic way

axis a math word! whats the definition of the word axis

### 3 Answers

Según el RAE, la palabra **eje** significa:

Recta fija alrededor de la cual se considera que gira un punto para engendrar una línea, una línea para engendrar una superficie o una superficie para engendrar un sólido.

y támbien:

Diámetro principal de una curva.

Las dos son términos de los matemáticas

Si que quiere decir lo que dice qfreed:

Long story short, axes in math are typically numbered lines along which measurements from an arbitrary point (origin) are made. These lines can be oriented in set ways to created systems such as cartesian systems (all axes perpendicular to each other ) at set angles or even variable angles (polar coordinate system).

entonces, **eje de coordenadas** lo significa:

Cada una de las rectas que se cortan en un mismo punto y que se utilizan para determinar la posición de los demás puntos del plano o del espacio por medio de las líneas coordenadas paralelas a ellos.

y que mas, si que quiere decir

Axis has a slightly different connotation when used with spinning objects. Again, the north south pole line is an axis since the earth revolves about that line.

entonces la frase **eje de simetría** lo significa:

Recta que, al ser tomada como eje de giro de una figura o cuerpo, hace que se superpongan todos los puntos análogos.

Buenas suertes

A definition is probably just going to confuse you even more as it will include confusing mathematical terms.

As with most words there are more than on meaning. one simple definition for an axis is line that splits a two dimensional object into two parts. If the earth were viewed as a two dimensional object (a circle) then the line connecting the north and south poles would be an axis. So would any line of longitude or latitude (the division does not have to be into two equal parts. With 3 dimesional objects the line must divide the object symmetically.

The words axle (cars) and axel (ice skating ) sprout from this concept.

The axes that you are most like to first encounter in math are number line and cartesian axes.

A number line is a one dimensional figure consisting of a line extending infinitely in both directions from an arbitrary point chosen as it origin (0) Coordinates and sign are used to show the distance and direction of any point in relation to the origin.

If you create a two dimensional figure consisting of two number lines intersecting at an arbitrary point (0,0) and oriented perpendicular to each other, you have cartesian system of axes usually called the cartesian cordinate system. The horizontal line is normally called the x axis and the vertical line is the y axis.

Three dimensional systems are depicted with 3 axes (x,y, z) all mutually perpendicular to each other intersecting at a common point (0,0,0)

That has nothing to do with Spanish, please look in an English dictionary.
