"bis" means bi-substituted in the way that there are two identical groups attached to a molecule. For example, if you have a bis-amide, you have a molecule that has 2 identica…l amides attached to it. (MORE)
Bi-pole can be used to refer to a type of surround sound speaker. .
Bipole Speakers .
Bipole surround speakers have two or more speakers that output sound from both sides… of the cabinet. If used as side surround speakers, the sound is output both towards the front and rear of the room. If used as rear surround speakers, they output sound in both directions along the rear wall. The dual speakers used in a bipole speaker are 'in phase', meaning that both speakers output sound simultaneously. Bipole speakers create a diffuse surround effect so the location of the speaker cannot be pinpointed. In general, bipole speakers are a good choice for movies and music and are usually placed on the side walls. (from About.com) Second, If your talking chemistry, then you probably mean di-pole. Which refers to a covalently bonded molecule having more electronegativity on one end than the other, creating two "poles" of partially positive and partially negative. (MORE)

Biturbo is the same as "Sequential Twin Turbo" .
Basically, you have 1 smaller turbo for lower RPM range, and a larger turbo for higher range. It helps greatly reduce turbo l…ag due to the smaller turbo can produce boost much earlier than a super single or twin turbo setup can do. At lower RPM, the smaller turbo spools and produces boost - then when you reach a preset RPM or boost level, a staging valve opens and directs air to turbo 2 (large one) and it now produces the boost for the engine. Usually, stage one turbo is turned off, or its boost is sent into the compressor intake of the stage 2 turbo to achieve a higher output pressure. .
Do not confuse Biturbo / Sequential Twin Turbo with "Twin Turbo". .
Twin turbo is having two EQUAL size turbo's. Each runs off its own cylinder bank in V or H type (boxer) engines, or off of a turbo manifold on inline type engines. Both turbos share the load equally in producing boost air. (Like a dual core processor in your PC - both run at same speed, sharing the load equally) So, turbo lag still effects this type of setup, as both turbos will spool at the same time. (MORE)
Bipedal describes a manner of movement in which one moves using two legs or feet. (Biped in latin is literally "two footed") Humans are bipedal, as are some animals like kanga…roos or some primates, although the term is not restricted to describing living organisms. Animals like dogs and cats are considered quadrupedal, as they move on four limbs. (MORE)
"Bi-" in biology means " two "..
"binary" as in "binary fission", which means splitting in two; "biped", which refers to an animal that walks on two feet, …not four; ribulose biphosphate, which has two phosphate groups..
But in the word "biology" the first part is "bio", meaning "life". (MORE)

Meaning respectively 'to knowbefore', 'to be possessed of all knowledge', and 'to know iswrong'. (MORE)
