bipolar or polar?

  The Asker

so, if something is polar isnt already divided in nature? Why would you need to add the bi-? or is this some sort of new age thing like metrosexuality?

"Polar" can refer to something that deals with a pole or axis, such as polar coordinates or to one pole of a bipolar system, as with polar ice cap.


  Dr. Egon Spengler

"Bipolar" refers to a system that consists of two branches, as with a bipolar neuron or to something that deals with both poles of a planet, for instance: bipolar ice loss.
