Definitions for "Plates"
Pieces of crust and brittle uppermost mantle, perhaps 100 kilometers thick and hundreds or thousands of kilometers wide, that cover the Earth's surface. The plates move very slowly over, or possibly with, a viscous layer in the mantle at rates of a few centimeters per year. (See Figure 8. )
See tectonic plates.
The surface of the Earth is broken into large plates that move very gradually over time. Where the edges of two plates come together, there is often intense and sometimes dangerous geological activity, involving earthquakes and volcanoes. The massive pressure that results from plate movements can build mountain ranges, which continue to push upwards for many years, as plates buckle against each other.
The weights that you put on an Olympic dumbell, specifically a 45 pound weight. Smaller weights are called quarters (25 pounds), dimes (10 pounds), and nickels (5 pounds).
The flat discs placed on the ends of barbell and dumbbell bars to increase the weight of the apparati. Although some plates are made from vinyl-covered con-crete, the best and most durable plates are manufactured from metal.
Flat, round weights that can be place at the end of a barbell or dumbbell.

Usually made of aluminium. The image of the job is carried on the plate
In a book, a plate is often a full-page illustration, such as a frontispiece portrait, but it need not be full-page.
elements fixed on the frame, the role of which is to group together the foot controls: gear selector, footrest, brake pedal. They are easily broken during impacts. On racing bikes they are adjustable so the rider can find the most suitable position.
light, thin horse-shoes, usually aluminium used for racing.
Thin horse shoes used for racing only

Pieces of wood placed on wall surfaces as fastening devices. The bottom member of the wall is the sole plate and the top member is the rafter plate.
Major horizontal timbers that support the base of the rafters.
In residential wood-frame construction, the horizontal parts of a wall frame running atop the subfloor, and at the ceiling atop the stud ends, on which framing from above bears.
Flat, typically rectangular components that contain the active material and a mechanical support structure called a grid, which also has an electrical function, carrying electrons to and from the active material. Plates are either positive or negative, depending on the active material they hold.
Flat particles of metal powder having considerable thickness.
Flat metal or occasionally wooden pieces in between which the wheels and other internal parts are fitted
A battery is made up of lead plates separated by an electrolyte solution. The electrolyte solution chemically reacting with the lead plates causes the flow of electrons known as electric current.
The term plates is given to the internal vertical structure in each of the six cells of the battery, they can be seen in some batteries by looking into the filler holes of which there are six, In a healthy battery the top edges of the plates will be covered by about 1/8" of distilled water/sulphuric acid.

A printing plate is a metal or plastic material with a UV sensitive coating applied to it. This light sensitive coating retains the images from the film negatives stripped to the flats.
