Lying or being across, or in a crosswise direction; athwart; -- often opposed to longitudinal.
Anything that is transverse or athwart.
The longer, or transverse, axis of an ellipse.
Crosswise; lying across the long axis of the body or of a part.
Literally "across," usually signifying a direction or plane perpendicular to the axis of a part.
A kind of wave where the medium is disturbed in a direction that is perpendicular to the direction the wave is moving (propagating). Click for a movie showing a transverse wave. Back to Wave Index
in a direction across the body from side to side.
The direction perpendicular to the ridge.
Anything perpendicular to the beam axis.
When the baby lies horizontally across the uterus.
broader than long; running across
Perpendicular to the direction of ground-water flow.
Across; at right angles to the longitudinal axis.
lying across, crosswide, bands or striae running across the shell at right angles to the axis.
A position in which the back of the baby's head (the occiput) is facing towards the mothers side: this may cause a longer or more painful labour.
running around a body segment, perpendicular to body axis.
Lying or placed across or crosswise
Usually referring to the position of the fetus within the uterus. Sometimes babies will become positioned horizontally across the uterus, instead of the vertical position with the head or buttocks pointing toward the cervix. Usually the fetus will orient himself properly before labor. If the baby cannot be properly oriented, a C-section may be needed.
A direction that goes across a car.
at right angle to the fore and aft centreline compare longitudinal
across the breadth of an organ.
(Nerves, lines on bark etc.) running perpendicular to axis (of leaf, bole etc.). Parent Term: Venation Difficulty Level
lying across, from side to side
Broader than long, or at a right angle to the longitudinal axis.
Across. A transverse section is a section across the length of a building or room.
Used to describe the axis of a bridge which lies perpendicular or radial to the longitudinal axis.
When the fetus is turned sideways in the uterus.
At right angles to the front-to-back axis of the body.
Situated or lying across; crosswise.
Lying or running at right angles to the axis of the tree bole or limb.
Across a segment, or perpendicular to the long axis of the body of a caterpillar.
Describes the side-lying (where the baby's body length is horizontal in the uterus) position of the baby before birth. Unless moved, the baby will have to be delivered by c-section.
Crosswise. At right angles.
A deep member supporting longitudinal frames of bottom or side shell or longitudinal deck beams. At right angles to the fore-and-aft centerline.
Made at right angles to the long axis of the body.
A map projection in which the axis of the map is aligned from pole to pole rather than along the equator.
