length refers to a linwhich is one dimensional. Area refers to a square which is two dimensional. Volume refers to a cube which is three dimensional. There is no fourth dimension. The zero dimension is a point with no mass.

### What are all the known dimensions?

there are 5. 1-length/height 2-Width and length/height 3-length and height and volume 4-Space and length and height and volume 5-Time and Space and Length and width and volume

### How are length area and volume related in terms of the 3 dimensions in space?

Length is the measurement of a one-dimensional quantity. Area is the measurement of a two-dimensional quantity. Volume is the measurement of a three-dimensional quantity. A solid object that exists only temporarily can be described with four dimensions.

### Why is volume labeled with cubic units?

That is related to the fact that space has 3 dimensions.

### Why would cubic yards measure a volume of a pool?

A yard is a measure of length in 1-dimensional space and so has dimensions [L]. A cubic yard, therefore, has dimensions of [L3] which are the dimensions of volume in 3-dimensional space. Since it is a unit that measures volume, it could be used t measure the volume of a pool. However, nowadays, most people in the world would use cubic metres (or, possibly, litres).

### What is spacial dimension?

Spacial dimensions are the dimensions in space such as length,height and depth.

### How are length and volume?

Length is a one dimensional measure of space, volume is three dimensional measure of space.

### How is the word 'space' defined?

Space is the enormous volume in which matter and energy are located and through which motion takes place. Space is observed to have three dimensions, which are length, width, and depth (or height). It is hypothesized that there may be more dimensions than the three that we observe in our daily lives. String theory gives space ten dimensions and M-theory gives it as many as eleven dimensions including that of time.

### What is the tool for measuring volume?

Volume is the three-dimensional space occupied by an object. It is not how much matter there is in the object---mass tells us that--nor does it give the weight. It just tells us how much space the object occupies in the three dimensions. So to have volume an object has to have length, width and height. A line, for example, has no volume.

### Does a point have the two dimensions of length and width?

No, a point has no length, width, or height and thus has no dimensions. It is defined by a set of coordinates, but itself has no dimensions. A line has length but no width or height, and thus has 1 dimension. a plane has length and width, but no height, and thus has 2 dimensions. a space has length, width and height, and thus has 3 dimensions.

### What is space in three dimensions?

It is a geometric model of the physical universe . The three dimensions are length, width, and depth or height

volume
