Do this on both sides of the major axis, and produce these lines so they cross the curved lines (G).
We may take any point along the major axis, as shown, for instance, in Fig. 149.
In this case the principal axis of the body is the major axis of the second as well as of the third girdle.
Polar spines three-sided pyramidal, about as long as the major axis of the shell; their basal thickness equals one mesh.
If, on the contrary, the post is longer than the shelf the ellipse should have its major axis in a vertical position, Figure 74.
But pour a beam of direct sunlight from end to end along its major axis.
Polar spines cylindrical, blunt, longer than the major axis, scarcely half as broad as one larger pore.
The line drawn through the longest part of an ellipse is called the major axis.
They consist of one central passage which extends under the arena from end to end in the line of the major axis of the ellipse.
The anomaly is then the angle BFP which the radius vector makes with the major axis.
