WHAT DOES COAXIAL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

coaxial

Coaxial

In geometry, coaxial means that two or more forms share a common axis; it is the three-dimensional linear analogue of concentric. Coaxial cable, as a common example, has a wire conductor in the centre a circumferential outer conductor and an insulating medium called the dielectric separating these two conductors. The outer conductor is usually sheathed in a protective PVC outer jacket. The dimension and material of the conductors and insulation determine the cable's characteristic impedance and attenuation at various frequencies. In loudspeaker design, coaxial speakers are a loudspeaker system in which the individual driver units radiate sound from the same point or axis. A coaxial weapon mount places two weapons on the same axis - as the weapons are usually side-by-side or one on top of the other, they are technically par-axial rather than coaxial, however the distances involved mean that they are effectively coaxial as far as the operator is concerned.

Definition of coaxial in the English dictionary

The first definition of coaxial in the dictionary is having or being mounted on a common axis. Other definition of coaxial is having all the centres on a straight line. Coaxial is also formed from, using, or connected to a coaxial cable.
