 2. Any appearance or aspect of an object of mental apprehension or view; as, the problem has many phases.
 3. Astron. A particular appearance or state in a regularly recurring cycle of changes with respect to quantity of illumination or form of enlightened disk; as, the phases of the moon or planets. See Illust. under Moon.
 4. Physics Any one point or portion in a recurring series of changes, as in the changes of motion of one of the particles constituting a wave or vibration; one portion of a series of such changes, in distinction from a contrasted portion, as the portion on one side of a position of equilibrium, in contrast with that on the opposite side.
 5. Phys. Chem. A homogenous, physically distinct portion of matter in a system not homogeneous; as, the three phases, ice, water, and aqueous vapor; in a mixture of gasoline and water, the gasoline will settle as the upper phase.  A phase may be either a single chemical substance or a mixture, as of gases.
 6.  Zool.

 8.  Specifically: Elec. The relation at any instant of a periodically varying electric magnitude, as electro-motive force, a current, etc., to its initial value as expressed in factorial parts of the complete cycle.  It is usually expressed in angular measure, the cycle being four right angles, or 360°.
