    Having a common central axis.


  1. Coaxial

    In geometry, coaxial means that two or more forms share a common axis; it is the three-dimensional linear analogue of concentric. Coaxial cable, as a common example, has a wire conductor in the centre a circumferential outer conductor and an insulating medium called the dielectric separating these two conductors. The outer conductor is usually sheathed in a protective PVC outer jacket. The dimension and material of the conductors and insulation determine the cable's characteristic impedance and attenuation at various frequencies. In loudspeaker design, coaxial speakers are a loudspeaker system in which the individual driver units radiate sound from the same point or axis. A coaxial weapon mount places two weapons on [roughly] the same axis - as the weapons are usually side-by-side or one on top of the other, they are technically par-axial rather than coaxial, however the distances involved mean that they are effectively coaxial as far as the operator is concerned.
