NORMAL SECTION LINEA line on the surface of a reference ellipsoid, connecting two points on that surface, and traced by a plane containing the normal at one point and passing through the other point. 
BEADING PLANEA plane having a curved cutting edge for shaping beads in wood. Also known as bead plane. 
ASCENDING NODEThat point at which a planet, planetoid, or comet crosses the ecliptic from south to north, or a satellite crosses the plane of the equator of its primary from south to north. Also called NORTHBOUND NODE. The opposite is called DESCENDING NODE 
FACE AREAThe total plane area of the portion of a grille, coil, or other items bounded by a line tangent 
OBLIQUE EQUATORA great circle the plane of which is perpendicular to the axis of an oblique projection. An oblique equator serves as the origin for measurement of oblique latitude. On an oblique Mercator map projection, the oblique equator is the tangent great circle. 
CIRCLE

BENDIXWEISS UNIVERSAL JOINTA universal joint that provides for constant angular velocity of the driven shaft by transmitting the torque through a set of four balls lying in the plane that contains the bisector of, and is perpendicular to, the plane of the angle between the shafts. 
PRISMA solid having parallel, similar, equal, plane geometric figures as bases, and parallelograms as sides. By extension, the term is also applied to a similar solid having nonparallel bases, and trapezoids or a combination of trapezoids and parallelograms as sides. Prisms are used for changing the direction of motion of a ray of light and for forming spectra. 
ORBITAL PLANEThe plane of the ellipse defined by a central force orbit. 
ARMATURE REACTIONThe effect caused by the interaction of the magnetic field of the current carrying conductors in the armature with the main magnetic field. The two magnetic fields combined cause a distortion in the overall magnetic field that results in a shift in the neutral plane in the direction of armature rotation.
