The distance of any point in a curve or a straight line, measured on a line called the axis of ordinates or on a line parallel to it, from another line called the axis of abscissas, on which the corresponding abscissa of the point is measured.

The vertical axis of a graph.

One of the coordinates in a system of rectangular coordinates defining the position of a point.

The value representing the distance of a point from the X-axis in the Cartesian coordinate system, measured along a line parallel to the Y-axis. (Compare "Abscissa".)

The y-coordinate in a point (x,y). For the point the ordinate is . See abscissa.

bring (components or parts) into proper or desirable coordination correlation; "align the wheels of my car"; "ordinate similar parts"

a line drawn perpendicular to the axis of a curve and terminating the curvilinear space

An ordinate is the second coordinate in an ordered pair.

The -coordinate, or second coordinate of an ordered pair.

the coordinate of a point in a plane cartesian coordinate system obtained by measuring parallel to the y-axis ("the 'y' value").

The vertical line of a graph. This is also referred to as the y-axis.

Ordinate is another name for the y-axis (the vertical axis). The ordinate is the second number in a point (x,y).

The second element in a coordinate pair. When graphed in the coordinate plane, it is the distance from the x-axis. Frequently called the y coordinate.

The vertical axis. Usually the dependent variable is plotted on the ordinate. See abscissa.

The Y coordinate on a Cartesian graph. The Cartesian system is the one that looks like a grid full of squares.
