The length of a straight line through the center of an object from side to side; width; thickness; as, the diameter of a tree or rock.
The distance through the lower part of the shaft of a column, used as a standard measure for all parts of the order. See Module.
A straight line passing through the centre of a cylinder or disc and terminated by its boundary.
The length of a straight line passing through the center of a tree or a log. Tree diameter is usually measured 4.5 feet above ground level (cf. D.b.h. and Breast Height).
A line segment joining two points on a circle and passing through the center of the circle.
The longest distance at right angles, across any circle or cylinder. In standing trees, estimate diameter by dividing the circumference (length of a line taken completely around the outside of a tree) by 3.1416.
(3) A line segment that passes through the center of a circle (or sphere) and has end-points on the circle (or sphere); also, the length of such a line segment. The diameter of a circle is twice its radius.

The diameter of a graph is the largest distance that can occur between any two vertices in the graph.
a straight line segment which passes through the center of a circle or sphere with both its ends on the boundary of the circle
The diameter of a graph is the length of the longest chain you are forced to use to get from one vertex to another in that graph. You can find the diameter of a graph by finding the distance between every pair of vertices and taking the maximum of those distances.
The measurment of a line that passes from one side of a circle to the other side of the circle, through the center point.
a line segment that contains the center and has its endpoints on the circle. Also, the length of this segment. (A chord through the center of the circle.)
The length of a straight line passing through the center of a tree or a portion of a tree. Tree diameter is usually measured 4.5 feet above ground level (see DBH), but log diameter is measured at the small end.
Any straight line drawn through the center and terminated by the circumference of the circle and the straight line bisects the circle.
l - A chord that passes through the center of a circle. Also the length of a line that cuts the shape in half.
The length from one side to the other of a circle or sphere.

the distance from one side of a body to the other, measured through the center
Any line which goes from one side of a circle to the other, passing directly through the center point (splits the circle into halves).
A chord that contains the center of a circle.
If (''M'', ''d'') is a metric space and ''S'' is a subset of ''M'', the diameter of ''S'' is the supremum of the distances ''d''(''x'', ''y''), where ''x'' and ''y'' range over ''S''.
a chord through the centre of a circle
a straight line connecting the center of a circle with two points on its perimeter (or the center of a sphere with two points on its surface)

a chord which passes through the center of the circle

A diameter of a circle is a line connecting two points on the circle and passes through the center of the circle.

A straight line passing through the center of a circle or other curvilinear figure, dividing the figure into two equal parts
The distance of one side of the circle, through its center, and to its other side. The diameter is exactly one half the length of the radius, and there are an infinite number of diameters although they are all the same size because they all must pass through the circle's center.

The distance from one end to another thru the center

A straight line segment that passes through the center of a circle or sphere and connects two opposite points. Mathematically, the diameter of a circle is expressed as 2r, with "r" representing the radius of the circle or sphere.
chord that goes through the center of a circle.
The diameter of a graph is the longest distance you can find between two vertices. When you are measuring distances to determine a graph's diameter, recall that if 2 vertices have many paths of different distances connecting them, you can only count the shortest one. An interesting problem in graph theory is to draw graphs in which both the degrees of the vertices and the diameter of the graph are small. Drawing the largest graphs possible that meet these criteria is an open problem.
The length of a straight line measured through the center of a circle from one side to the other.
A line segment that passes through the center of a circle (or sphere) and has endpoints on the circle (or sphere); also, the length of such a line segment. The diameter of a circle is twice it radius. See also circle.
(n.): The diameter of a graph is the maximal distance between any two points on the graph. If the graph is not connected, its diameter is infinite.
(n.) The distance across a graph, measured by the number of links traversed. Diameter is usually taken to mean maximum diameter (ie the greatest internode distance in the graph, but it can also mean the average of all internode distances. Diameter is sometimes used as a measure of the goodness of a topology.

a measurement of a circle's width at its widest point.
The length of a straight line that extends from one edge of a tumor or other object, through its center and to the opposite edge. It is usually used to measure the size of round or spherical shapes.
