# 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:

• 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.
