THREE-ARM    PROTRACTOR.—An instrument  consisting  essentially  of  a  circle graduated  in  degrees  to  which  is  attached one  fixed  arm  and  two  arms  pivoted  at  the center  and  provided  with  clamps  so  they can be set at any angle to the fixed arm within  the  limits  of  the  instrument. TIDE.—The  periodic  rise  and  fall  of  the surface  of  oceans,  bays,  and  so  forth,  due principally  to  the  gravitational  attraction  of the  Moon  and  Sun  for  the  rotating  Earth. TIME  DIAGRAM.—A  diagram  in  which the  celestial  equator  appears  as  a  circle  and celestial  meridians  and  hour  circles  as radial  lines,  used  to  facilitate  solution  of time  problems  and  others  involving  arcs  of the celestial equator or angles at the pole by  indicating  relations  between  various quantities involved. TRACK.—To  follow  the  movements  of  an object, as by radar or an optical system. TRANSMITTER.—One  who  or  that  which transmits  or  sends  anything,  particularly  a radio  transmitter.

VECTOR.—A  straight  line  representing both direction and magnitude. VECTOR  DIAGRAM.—A  diagram  of more  than  one  vector  drawn  to  the  same scale  and  reference  direction  and  in  correct position relative to each other. VERNAL  EQUINOX.—That  point  of intersection of the elliptical and the celestial equator occupied by the Sun as it changes  from  south  to  north  declination  on or about March 21. VISIBILITY.—The  extreme  horizontal distance  at  which  prominent  objects  can  be seen and identified by the unaided eye. AI-12
