# X-Axis Definition

It is one axis from **two dimensional **or **three-dimensional** graph or **space** in which you want to **display **the **location** of any object. The **X-Axis** is the **horizontal line** that moves in the **right **and **left** directions from the Origin (**The point where all axis intersects**) of the plane.

**Note:**

You can read about **Origin** here.

The **x-axis** gives the **value** of any object **distance** from the origin of the **plane**. It shows how far an **object** has been **moved** from the **point** of origin on the **horizontal axis**. It can be **positive** or **negative** in both **directions** as per the **requirements** of the **problem**.

## Significance of x-axis

This **axis** and its belonging axis have **great** importance for **students** dealing with different **Mathematical** fields. It is **good **to know how to draw the **x-axis** along with others to **learn** how to draw a **graph** for any **question**.

Here are some of the **fields** and **conditions** when you have to **deal** with this type of **problem**.

- Physics
- Object location
- To show relationship between two quantities
- Basic to advanced Mathematics problems

### Other types of axis

There are **two major** axes in a **two-dimensional** framework or **plane**. These are **termed** the **x-axis and y-axis.** We have **discussed** the first one in detail in the above sections. **A y-axis** is a **perpendicular **plane to the **x-axis **that also **originates** from the Origin where all values are **“0”**.

In the case of **three-dimensional **space, another axis **involves** the above **two **and is termed the **z-axis**. This axis is **perpendicular** to both the above-mentioned axes. Normally, it is considered an imaginary axis because we can’t draw a **three-dimensional** shape on the paper as it is **two-dimensional **only.

**Note:**

### FAQ's

**Which axes are involved in a two-dimensional plane?**

In the two-dimensional plane, the x-axis and y-axis are involved only.

**What is its origin?**

It is the point of intersection where all axis meets with each other.

**Why all values are zero at the origin?**

All values are zero at the origin because all axis are considered to originate from that point.

**Why z-axis is considered imaginary normally?**

It is because we can’t draw this axis normally on our two-dimensional paper. That is why we consider it to be an imaginary axis in space that we can’t see or draw but understand.
