    abscisa = abscissa
    Abscissa: the horizontal coordinate of a point in a plane Cartesian coordinate system obtained by measuring parallel to the x-axis.

    Ordenada = Ordinate
    Ordinate: the Cartesian coordinate obtained by measuring parallel to the y-axis.

    Si, en un sistema de Coordenadas Cartesianas Ortogonales el eje horizontal es el de las absisas y el eje vertical es el de las ordenadas.

    No se cómo se denominan en inglés. Espero que esto te ayude.


    Perdón, entraron tarde los post anteriores
