Angle print that page

In geometry , an angle is the figure formed by two rays sharing a common endpoint , called the vertex of the angle . [ 1 ] The magnitude of the angle is the "amount of rotation" that separates the two rays, and can be measured by considering the length of circular arc swept out when one | 2011/10/1 19:00:32

Angle of view print that page


In photography , angle of view describes the angular extent of a given scene that is imaged by a camera . It is used interchangeably with the more general term field of view . It is important to distinguish the angle of view from the angle of coverage , which describes the angle of projection

Contact angle print that page


The contact angle is the angle at which a liquid / vapor interface meets a solid surface . The contact angle is specific for any given system and is determined by the interactions across the three interfaces. Most often the concept is illustrated with a small liquid droplet resting on

Northwest Angle print that page


The Northwest Angle , known simply as the Angle by locals, and coextensive with Angle Township , is a part of northern Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota , and is the only place in the United States outside Alaska that is north of the 49th parallel . That parallel is the northern boundary

Dutch angle print that page


A special Dutch Angle is the Bavarian Angle , where the camera position is changed about 90° from the common angle . Horizontal lines become vertical. A Dutch angle differs from a high angle shot and low angle shot (although Dutch angle shots are often combined with those for artistic

Degree (angle) print that page

A degree (in full, a degree of arc , arc degree , or arcdegree ), usually denoted by ° (the degree symbol ), is a measurement of plane angle , representing 1 ⁄ 360 of a full rotation ; one degree is equivalent to π/180 radians . It is not an SI unit , as the SI unit for angles is radian | 2011/8/20 17:13:30

Angle trisection print that page


With such tools, the task of angle trisection is generally impossible , as shown by Pierre Wantzel (1837). Wantzel's proof relies on ideas from the field of Galois theory —in particular, trisection of an angle corresponds to the solution of a certain cubic equation , which is not possible

Brewster's angle print that page


described by the Fresnel equations , and is dependent upon the incoming light's polarization and angle of incidence. The Fresnel equations predict that light with the p polarization ( electric field polarized in the same plane as the incident ray and the surface normal ) will not be reflected

Camber angle print that page


Camber angle alters the handling qualities of a particular suspension design; in particular, negative camber improves grip when cornering. This is because it places the tire at a better angle to the road, transmitting the forces through the vertical plane of the tire, rather than through

Pressure angle print that page


Just as there are three types of profile angles, there are also three types of corresponding pressure angles: the transverse pressure angle , the normal pressure angle , and the axial pressure angle . [ 3 ] [ edit ] See also List of gear nomenclature [ edit ] References ^ http
