Similar property. Properties that are side by side but do not meet.
always equidistant. Parallel lines never meet, however far they are produced. Parallel lines must lie in the same plane.
Two lines are parallel if they are in the same plane and never intersect.
An aspect formed when two planets are in the same declination, that is, when they are the same distance north or south of the celestial equator. Generally considered to operate much like the conjunction.
an imaginary circle of constant latitude around the surface of the earth parallel to the equator. See also meridian.
Outmoded Idea that 2 Lines can Extend to Infinity Without Touching
Extending in the same direction and at a constant distance apart, so as to never meet. A parallel line, surface, etc. Also used to refer to lines of latitude which circle the earth and are all parallel to the equator and each other.
an imaginary line around the Earth parallel to the equator
being everywhere equidistant and not intersecting; "parallel lines never converge"; "concentric circles are parallel"; "dancers in two parallel rows"
a circle of latitude A circle of latitude is an imaginary east-west circle on the Earth, that connects all locations with a given latitude
an aspect by declination, rather than longitude
Lines that lie in the same plane and never meet. Also, planes lying in space that never meet.
Two lines that run next to each other but never meet.
Another word for latitude lines.
Two lines running side by side at an equal distance apart. Railroad tracks run parallel to each other.
Lines or surfaces which may be extended infinitely without meeting.
A parallel (of latitude) is a line on a map that represents an imaginary east-west circle drawn on the Earth in a plane parallel to the plane that contains the equator.
1. Of or relating to electronic circuits in which the corresponding terminals of two or more components are connected. 2. In geometry and graphics, of, relating to, or being lines that run side by side in the same direction in the same plane without intersecting. 3. In data communications, of, relating to, or being information that is sent in groups of bits over multiple wires, one wire for each bit in a group. See also parallel interface. Compare serial. 4. In data handling, of or relating to handling more than one event at a time, with each event having its own portion of the system's resources.
A line circling the earth at a constant latitude. The Equator is the parallel at 0° latitude that serves as the baseline for all latitude measurements.
Line of latitude. The 17th parallel is the line of latitude at 17 degrees north or south.
two or more straight coplanar lines that do not intersect
lines or surfaces that are always the same distance apart and therefore never meet
A horizontal line (really a circle) encircling the earth at constant latitude.
Circle in parallel planes to that of the equator defining north-south measurements, also called line of latitude.
veins running side by side without intersecting - typical of monocots
A parallel poster to the roadside, can be seen from both sides of the road.
Two lines extending in the same direction and angle and never meeting.
Refers to a data communication format wherein many signal lines are used to communicate more than one piece of data at the same time.
Two or more lines that never intersect. Their slopes are exactly equal.
In siege operation, a trench or system of trenches dug by the besieging army roughly parallel to the enemy's ramparts as a line from which to begin a further advance.
An aspect in declination where two planets are in the same degree (with an orb of 1 degree), both North or both South of the celestial equator. Read by most astrologers as similar to a conjunction.
(adj) Extending in the same direction, everywhere equidistant (same distance apart), and not meeting. (You'll hear this one in math class.)
lines that never meet and infinitely maintain the same distance between them.
Lines on the earth's surface that are parallel with the equator.
Lying or extending alongside of one another and always at the same distance apart; continuously equidistant: said of two or more lines, surfaces, or concrete things.
A line of latitude. See latitude.
a parapet thrown up to confront defenses when conducting a siege by regular approaches. The First Parallel was constructed out of range of the enemy's guns. Saps were pushed forward fifty or a hundred yards to construct a Second Parallel, and so on, until reaching the ditch of the enemy fortification. Imprecisely applied to describe a curtain wall.
Lines of constant latitude, parallel to the equator.
a circumference parallel to the (celestial or terrestrial) equator; it measures the latitude of a point.
An aspect by declination that operates in much the same way as a conjunction. In this case, two planets which occupy the same degree of latitude are said to be parallel.
1. A property of two or more lines that are separated at all points by the same distance. 2. A horizontal line encircling the earth at a constant latitude . The equator is a parallel whose latitude is 0 degrees. Digital measures of latitude are positive up to 90 degrees above the equator and negative below. On maps they are identified by degrees N or S from the equator
Lines that are in the same plane that do not intersect.
The relationship between lines, planes, etc. that lie at a 0° angle and are aligned in the same direction.
In two-dimensional Euclidean space, two lines that do not intersect. In three-dimensional Euclidean space, parallel lines not only fail to intersect, but also maintain a constant separation between points closest to each other on the two lines.
A line parallel to the equator and connecting all places of the same latitude.
Given distinct lines in the plane that are infinite in both directions, the lines are parallel if they never meet. Two distinct lines in the coordinate plane are parallel if and only if they have the same slope.
1. A property of two or more lines that is separated at all points by the same distance. 2. A horizontal line encircling the Earth at a constant latitude. The Equator is a parallel whose latitude is 0. Measures of latitude range from 0 to 90 north of the Equator and from 0 to -90 to the south.
A line of constant latitude. Parallels get shorter toward the poles, becoming a point at the pole itself.
The angular relationship between two planets that occupy the same degree (within 1° orb) and direction of declination, both north or both south. Interpretational emphasis is similar to that of a weak conjunction. See also declination.
Lines side by side, equidistant, and never meeting.
Parallel is a term in geometry and in everyday life that refers to a property in Euclidean space of two or more lines or planes, or a combination of these. The existence and properties of parallel lines are the basis of Euclid's parallel postulate.
