ii. The angle between a magnetic compass-needle perfectly poised, or on the horizontal axis, and the local horizontal plane. Also called a magnetic inclination or dip angle.
iii. The vertical angle between the true horizon and the apparent or visible horizon. Dip is a function of the height of the eye (i.e., the vertical distance of the observer's eye from the earth's surface).
iv. To dip or to lower one's wing, generally as a sign of recognition or acknowledgment.

(3) (Dual In-line Package) A common, mostly-rectangular chip housing with leads (pins) on both sides. Tiny wires bond the chip to metal leads that wind their way down into spider-like feet. The DIP is plugged into a socket or inserted into holes in the printed circuit board and soldered. See DIP switch, CDIP, CERDIP and chip package.
