In a chart or other two-dimensional system using coordinates, the horizontal line (x-axis) or vertical line (y-axis) that serves as a reference for plotting points. In a three-dimensional coordinate system, a third line (z-axis) is used to represent depth. See the illustration. See also Cartesian coordinates.

Sinonimi: axis of rotation
In geometry, one of the reference lines by which a point on a graph may be located. The horizontal axis is usually referred to as the x-axis, and the vertical axis as the y-axis. The term is also used to refer to the imaginary line about which an object may be said to be symmetrical (axis of symmetry)—for example, the diagonal of a square—or the line about which an object may revolve (axis of rotation).(Irregular plural: axes).
A straight line through a body or figure that satisfies certain conditions.
The center around which something rotates; SYN. axis of rotation.
