In a scenario of a box, up side down is a 180 degree down. But, how to describe a 90 degree down? Such as fall down? Thank you!

  • By "90 degrees down", do you mean the box is lying on one of its 4 sides? – John Zhau Jul 6 at 7:23
  • Yes, it is lying on one of it's four sides. – Superuser Jul 7 at 7:03

You might say:

The box was laying on its side.

The box had fallen on its side.

The box had tipped over on to its side.
