User: distortion

Weegy: Distortion (or warping) is the alteration of the original shape (or other characteristic) of something, such as an object, image, sound or waveform. Distortion is usually unwanted, and often efforts are to lessen it. [ In some fields, however, distortion may be desirable; such is the case with electric guitar distortion. ]

Weegy: In mathematics, an ellipse (from Greek ???e???? elleipsis, a "falling short") is a plane curve that results from the intersection of a cone by a plane in a way that produces a closed curve. [ Circles are special cases of ellipses, obtained when the cutting plane is orthogonal to the cone's axis. An ellipse is also the locus of all points of the plane whose distances to two fixed points add to the same constant. The name ???e???? was given by Apollonius of Perga in his Conics, emphasizing the connection of the curve with "application of areas". ] (More)
