The angle at which a satellite orbit is tilted relative to Earth's equator.

The angle between the plane of the orbit of a planet and the ecliptic.

1. A deviation from the vertical or horizontal. Also the angle of a slope or a dip. 2. magnetic: The angle between the horizontal plane and a magnetic line of force.

the angle between two planes or their poles; usually the angle between an orbital plane and a reference plane; one of the standard orbital elements (see elements, orbital) that specifies the orientation of an orbit.

Angle or "tilt" of the object's orbit relative to the ecliptic plane, or Earth's orbit plane.

The angle between the plane of an orbit and a reference plane. The Mars equator is here used as the reference when referring to spacecraft inclination.

The elliptical path of a satellite orbit lies in a plane known as the orbital plane. The orbital plane always goes through the center of the Earth but may be tilted at any angle relative to the equator. Inclination is the angle between the equatorial plane and the orbital plane measured counter-clockwise at the ascending node.

The dip (tail down or head down) of the compass needle due to the earth's magnetic field.

(astronomy) the angle between the plane of the orbit and the plane of the ecliptic stated in degrees

(geometry) the angle formed by the x-axis and a given line (measured counterclockwise from the positive half of the x-axis)

(physics) the angle that a magnetic needle makes with the plane of the horizon

the property possessed by a line or surface that departs from the vertical; "the tower had a pronounced tilt"; "the ship developed a list to starboard"; "he walked with a heavy inclination to the right"

Inclination is the degree of deviation from a horizontal or vertical line. The inclination of the Space Shuttle as it orbits the Earth is tracked during missions, since its inclination determines the stability of the spacecraft . At some inclinations, the Shuttle is more stable than others, which means it requires less fuel to keep it in orbit and provides a better environment for some gravity-sensitive experiments.

the vertical angle of a rock surface or rock art image relative to the ground.

Describes the angle between the horizontal and the collector surface. It is 0° if the collectors are flat on the ground and 90° if they are vertical.

the angle or dip of the magnetic field from the horizontal. It ranges from 90° at the magnetic poles to 0° at the magnetic equator.

Angle between the orbit plane of a body orbiting the Sun and the ecliptic plane.

The inclination of an objects orbit is the angle between the plane of its orbit and the ecliptic for objects orbiting the Sun. The inclination of planets satellite is the angle between the plane of its orbit and the plane of its primary bodies equator.

The angle an orbital plane makes with respect to the ecliptic plane.

The angle between the orbit plane and the Earth's equatorial plane, measured counter-clockwise. A zero inclination orbit would mean the satellite is orbiting directly over the equator, an inclination of 90 degrees is a perfectly polar orbit.

The angular distance between a satellite's orbital plane and the equator of its primary.

the angle between a planet’s orbit and the ecliptic plane; or the angle between a satellite’s orbit and its host planet’s rotational plane

the measurement of a well’s deviation from vertical, in degrees. Also the angle between the direction of the produced fluid flow and the horizontal. Inclination values are positive for fluid flowing upward and negative for fluid flowing downward.

A measure of the tilt of a planet's orbital plane in relation to that of the Earth.

The angle between the orbital plane of a revolving body and some fundamental plane-usually the plane of the celestial equator or of the ecliptic.

The angle formed between the orbital path of a solar system body and the ecliptic plane. Planets move in prograde orbits and generally conform to the ecliptic, with low inclinations of a few degrees. Comets and meteoroid streams are much less confined, and can intersect the Earth-Sun plane at any angle. A perfect retrograde orbit would have an inclination of 180°, while one intersecting perpendicularly (at right angles) from the north or south would be considered to be 90° or 270° respectively.

Inclination is the angle between the plane of an orbit and the plane of the ecliptic. Orbital inclination is abbreviated as .

The angle between the plane of the orbit of a satellite and the Equatorial plane. A orbit of a perfectly-geostationary satellite has an inclination of

The angle between the orbital plane of a satellite and the equatorial plane of the earth.

The angle between the plane of an orbit and some reference plane, usually the ecliptic.

The inclination of a planet's orbit is the angle between the plane of its orbit and the ecliptic. The inclination of a moon's orbit is the angle between the plane of its orbit and the plane of its primary's equator.

Abbreviation i., in the Solar System, the angle between an orbit and the plane of the Earth's orbit (ecliptic).

The angle at which the orbital plane of a Satellite is inclined to the equatorial plane of the earth.

One of the six classical orbital elements. For a particular satellite's orbit, the inclination is a constant angle defining the tilt of the orbit's plane with respect to the earth's equatorial plane. It is shown in this figure of the classical orbital elements.

an inclined surface, slope, slant; the amoutn of slope or deviation from the horizontal position; tha acute angle between the earth's magnetic field and the horizontal. [AHDOS

The angle of the long axis of a tooth from a particular line of reference; the tilt or tip of a tooth.

The angle between a planet and the plane of its orbit.

Deviation angle. Measured in directional surveys and used in calculating true vertical depths. It is the angle between the axis of the measuring tool (hence, borehole axis) and true vertical. The inclination can also be measured with respect to true horizontal.

1. (Also called dip.) In terrestrial magnetism, the angle through which a freely suspended magnet would dip below the horizon in the magnetic northâ€“south meridional plane; one of the magnetic elements. At the aclinic line ( dip equator) the inclination is zero; at either magnetic pole ( dip pole) the inclination is 90Â°. 2. The angle between the plane of the satellite orbit and the earth's equatorial plane. An inclination angle of less than 90Â° is referred to as a prograde orbit, while an inclination angle greater than 90Â° is called a retrograde orbit.

angle between the orbital planes of two bodies; or the angle of the equator of a body with respect to its orbital plane.

Inclination in general is the angle between a reference plane and another plane or axis of direction. The axial tilt is expressed as the angle made by the planet's axis and a line drawn through the planet's center perpendicular to the orbital plane.
