[edit] Measurement

From Wiktionary:

The distance between evenly spaced objects, the angle at which an object sits, or the rotation angle about the transverse axis.

  • Blade pitch, a measure of the angle of attack of a propeller
  • Roof pitch Relates to the slope and inclination angle of a roof in building construction. A roof is considered pitched with a gradient greater than 15 degrees or a slope greater than 3.215 in 12. The primary purpose of a pitched roof is to redirect rainwater. In general, the pitch of the roof is proportional to the amount of precipitation. Houses in areas of low rainfall frequently have roofs of low pitch while those in areas of high rainfall and snow, have steep roofs. The longhouses of Papua New Guinea, for example, being roof-dominated architecture, the high roofs sweeping almost to the ground. The high steeply-pitched roofs of Germany and Holland are typical in regions of snowfall. In parts of the North America such as Buffalo or Montreal Canada, there is a required minimum slope of 6 inches in 12 inches, a pitch of 30 degrees.

    Carpenters frame rafters to "pitch" a roof. A roof's pitch is the measured vertical rise divided by the measured horizontal span, the same thing as what is called "slope" in geometry. Roof pitch is typically expressed as a rational fraction. Having twice as much rise per span, a shed pitched roof has twice the pitch as a gable pitched roof has for the same span.[1] Having two gradient exposure planes, often called a "pitched roof" is more correctly a "double-pitched roof". Mono-pitched roofs have one gradient exposure plane. Gable and other split opposed-slope pitched roofs allow for shorter primary structures with a corresponding conservation of materials.

  • Dot pitch, the distance between dots in a computer display
  • Roof pitch, the ratio of vertical over horizontal measurements in carpentry
  • Screw pitch, the distance from the crest of one screw thread to the next
  • Seat pitch, the arrangement of seats on an aircraft

[edit] Sales and marketing

  • Elevator pitch, a very short sales pitch
  • An elevator pitch (or elevator speech) is an overview of an idea for a product, service, or project. The name reflects the fact that an elevator pitch can be delivered in the time span of an elevator ride (for example, thirty seconds and 100-150 words).The term is typically used in the context of an entrepreneur pitching an idea to a venture capitalist or angel investor to receive funding. Venture capitalists often judge the quality of an idea and team on the basis of the quality of its elevator pitch, and will ask entrepreneurs for the elevator pitches to quickly weed out bad ideas and weak teams.A variety of other people, including entrepreneurs, project managers, salespeople, evangelists, policy-makers, job seekers, and speed daters commonly use elevator pitches to get their point across quickly.
  • Pitchware, a synonym for adware
  • Pitch (filmmaking), a sales pitch in the movie industry A pitch is a concise verbal (and sometimes visual) presentation of an idea for a film, generally made by a screenwriter or director to a producer or studio executive in the hope of attracting development finance to pay for a screenplay to be written. Pitches are usually made in person, although they can be made over the phone or, occasionally, pre-recorded on audio or videotape.A good pitch is generally between five and ten minutes long and lays out the premise, hook and essential beats of the story, along with thumbnail sketches of the principal characters (often including the names of actors who might play the roles), and a clear idea of the genre, tone, likely audience, and budget level. If an executive is interested in a pitch, he or she may ask to see a treatment. If not, the executive will often follow up with "What else have you got?"óFor this reason, a wise supplicant will be prepared to pitch a second and possibly third idea without hesitation.

A pitchfork next to a compost bin

A pitchfork is an agricultural tool with a long handle and long, thin, widely separated pointed tines (also called prongs) used to lift and pitch (throw) loose material, such as hay, leaves, grapes, dung or other agricultural materials. Pitchforks typically have from two to six tines with different lengths and spacing depending on purpose. They are usually made of steel with a long wooden handle, but may also be made from wood, wrought iron, bamboo, alloy etc. In some parts of England a pitchfork is known as a prong.[1] The pitchfork is similar to the shorter and sturdier garden fork.
