define eccentricity
Weegy: odd behavior on the part of a person, as opposed to being "normal" User: what is eccentricity in earth science Weegy: A measure of the deviation of an elliptical path, especially an orbit, from a perfect circle. [ It is equal to the ratio of the distance between the foci of the ellipse to the length of the major axis of the ellipse (the distance between the two points farthest apart on the ellipse). Eccentricity ranges from zero (for a perfect circle) to values approaching 1 (highly elongated ellipses). ] (More)
