Any right line passing through the center of a figure or body, as a circle, conic section, sphere, cube, etc., and terminated by the opposite boundaries; a straight line which bisects a system of parallel chords drawn in a curve.
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 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 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.
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. (See Pinhole Camera Observatory)
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.
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.
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 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.
The width of a circular case. At Second Time Round the case diameter is measured between the hours of 1 o'clock and 7 o'clock. Non-circular cases i.e. Tank, square, oval and rectangular styles are measured by their width across.
"Diameter" - is an arcade-style game with elements of economy and adventure. Project's main objective is to make a distinctive game with a storm gameplay and simultaneously alluring with its world. Plus, the main mood will be funny, but thus be serious.
The thicker the rope, the stronger and more durable it becomes. Unfortunately it comes at a price (weight!). The thinner ropes are generally used for more technical climbing situations and Alpine use. Thicker ropes are generally preferred for the larger big wall routes. It is also worth noting that a thicker rope gives a bit more friction in your stitch plate. This can help if your partner is heavier than yourself or if you just prefer a more positive feel. A few typical diameters are given below. Single Ropes: 10mm to 11mm Half Ropes: 8mm to 9mm Twin Ropes: 7mm to 8mm Static Line: 9mm to 13mm
