 Everyday Examples
 Segment Bisector:  A point, segment, line, or plane that divides a line segment into two equal parts.
As a trick, this man is attempting to balance the red stick, which is called a devilstick. To balance it, he needs to hold it at the mid-point of the segment. The segment bisector passes through the mid-point of the devilstick and will divide it exactly in half.

Balancing a stick requires holding it or placing a balance in the middle of the segment.
