Definition: Ordinate
Ordinate *\Or"di*nate\*, n. (Geom.)
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.
[1913 Webster]
Note: The ordinate and abscissa, taken together, are called
co["o]rdinates, and define the position of the point
with reference to the two axes named, the intersection
of which is called the origin of co["o]rdinates. In a
typical two-dimensional plot, viewed on a plane graph
in its normal orientation with perpendicular axes, the
ordinate is the vertical axis; when the axes are
labeled as x and y, it is the y-axis. See Coordinate.
