The X, Y, and Z axes
Scientists and engineers typically think of the three axes as:
- A horizontal
axis (often called X)
- A vertical axis (often called Y)
- A third axis that
is perpendicular to the plane formed by X and Y (often called Z).
However, Alice doesn't deal with X, Y, and Z axes.
Alice deals with:
- One axis that runs from left to right
- A second axis that runs from bottom to top
- A third axis that runs from front to back
The terms X, Y, and Z almost never appear in the Alice
