Plane (geometry)
In mathematics , a PLANE is a flat, two-dimensional surface that extends infinitely far. A plane is the two-dimensional analogue of a point (zero dimensions), a line (one dimension) and three-dimensional space . Planes can arise as subspaces of some higher-dimensional space, as with a room's walls extended infinitely far, or they may enjoy an independent existence in their own right, as in the setting of Euclidean geometry

. When working exclusively in two-dimensional Euclidean space

, the definite article is used, so, the plane refers to the whole space. Many fundamental tasks in mathematics, geometry , trigonometry , graph theory , and graphing are performed in a two-dimensional space, or, in other words, in the plane

Air
The ATMOSPHERE OF EARTH is the layer of gases , commonly known as AIR, that surrounds the planet Earth
Earth
and is retained by Earth\'s gravity . The atmosphere of Earth
Earth
protects life on Earth
Earth
by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation , warming the surface through heat retention (greenhouse effect ), and reducing temperature extremes between day and night (the diurnal temperature variation ). By volume, dry air contains 78.09% nitrogen , 20.95% oxygen , 0.93% argon , 0.04% carbon dioxide , and small amounts of other gases. Air also contains a variable amount of water vapor , on average around 1% at sea level, and 0.4% over the entire atmosphere. Air content and atmospheric pressure vary at different layers, and air suitable for use in photosynthesis by terrestrial plants and breathing of terrestrial animals is found only in Earth's troposphere and in artificial atmospheres

Synecdoche
A SYNECDOCHE (/sɪˈnɛkdəkiː/ , si-NEK-də-kee ; from Greek συνεκδοχή, synekdoche, lit. "simultaneous understanding") is a figure of speech in which a term for a part of something refers to the whole of something or vice versa. A synecdoche is a class of metonymy , often by means of either mentioning a part for the whole or conversely the whole for one of its parts . Examples from common English expressions include "bread and butter" (for "livelihood"), "suits" (for "businessmen"), and "boots" (for "soldiers") (pars pro toto ), or conversely "America" (for "the United States of America") (totum pro parte ). The use of government buildings to refer to their occupant(s) is on the border between synecdoche and metonymy. " The Pentagon
