1. A constant in an equation that varies in other equations of the same general form, especially such a constant in
the equation of a curve or surface that can be varied to represent a family of curves or surfaces.

2. One of a set of measurable factors, such as temperature and pressure, that define a system and determine its behavior and are varied in an experiment.
