Perpendicularity

 

Two lines are said to be perpendicular if they form a right angle; in space, such lines need not necessarily intersect. A line l and a plane p are perpendicular if l is perpendicular to every line lying in p. Two planes are perpendicular if they intersect to form a right dihedral angle. Orthogonality is a more general, and sometimes synonymous, concept of perpendicularity.

Excessive tool wear produced changing tool geometry and increased cutting forces, which promoted elastic deformation of casting with increasing tilt and destroying required tolerance on perpendicularity ("tilt").
By contrast, the permeation path of sample without CP was more tortuous because its interfacial area perpendicularity to the permeation direction of small molecules was larger.
