# Dimensions Definition

Generally, **Dimension** means **direction**. In Mathematics, Dimension is the measurement of a **specific length** in a particular **direction**. You can say that it is the measurement of any **object**, **material**, or **length** but in a particular direction.

**For example**, the measurement of the **width**, **height**, or **depth** of any shape or object.

## General examples of Dimensions

In Mathematics, common factors help the student in solving different problems. Through common factors, you can find the **LCM** and **HCF** of the given numbers

- A straight line.
- Sides of a square
- Lengths of a cube

### Types of figures based on Dimensions

There are four major types of figures that we can discuss based on Dimensions.

**Zero Dimensional**: It is a particular figure that has arbitrary dimensions.**For example**, a**“Dot”**is an example of a zero-dimensional figure.**One Dimensional**: It is a shape in Geometry that has only one direction.**For example**, a**straight**line is an example of this type of figure.

**Note:**

You can read about Geometry here.

**Two-Dimensional**: This type of shape has**two directions**at a single**connecting**point. The simplest example of a two-dimensional figure is a**square box**.**Three-Dimensional**: These are solid figures that have**three directions**at all**connecting**points.**For example**, your room is a three-dimensional figure because it has**three directions**at all corners of the room.

### FAQ's

**What is a three-dimensional square?**

The three-dimensional square is also called a cube. The plane square is not a three-dimensional figure but it is a two-dimensional figure.

**What do you mean by dimension?**

Dimension means direction. In Mathematics, it means the measure of a length in a particular direction.

**How many dimensions are in space?**

In space, three dimensions are commonly used. In Advanced Physics, the number of dimensions increases in space.
