The airplane Cartesian coordinate representing the length from a specified point to the x-axis, measured parallel toward y-axis.
the worth of a coordinate on the straight (Y) axis
the exact distance of any point in a curve or a straight range, calculated on a line called the axis of ordinates or on a line parallel to it, from another line labeled as the axis of abscissas, where the matching abscissa of this point is assessed.
In analytical geometry, a range accustomed determine the position of a spot in space, attracted from point to the axis of abscissas and parallel on axis of ordinates. See abscissa, and Cartesian coördinates (under Cartesian).
Any one of a collection of parallel chords of a conic in terms of the diameter bisecting all of them. What within good sense had been called semiordinate is now generally called ordinate.
