A line that intersects a segment at its midpoint bisects the segment.

A line that is perpendicular to the segment of a plane and passes through the midpoint.

Use the midpoint calculator to find out the midpoint of a line segment, which is the point that cuts the segment into two equal parts.

A Segment Bisector

No. Any line segment has exactly one midpoint.

A bisector is a line (or line segment) which passes through the midpoint. You can have multiple lines intersect at this one point, and all of them will bisect the original line segment, since they pass through its midpoint. A perpendicular bisector passes through the midpoint, and also is perpendicular to the original line segment, so there will be only one of those.

There is no name for it except "A line perpendicular to a line segment and passing through its midpoint".

A segment bisector

A line that intersects a segment at its midpoint bisects the segment.

All bisectors intersect the line segment at the midpoint. There can be multiple bisectors, intersecting at the midpoint at different angles, but they all intersect the line segment at its midpoint. The midpoint separates the line segment into two equal halves.

The perpendicular bisector of a line segment AB is the straight line perpendicular to AB through the midpoint of AB.

A point on a line segment that divides the segment into two equal parts is a midpoint.

A line segment cannot have more than one midpoint or else you will be creating multiple line segments that are connected to each other. A line segment can only have one midpoint.
