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.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### 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).

###### Asked in Astronomy, Units of Measure, Physics

### 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.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Technology

### 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.

is not possible.

###### Asked in Volume, Measuring Tools

### 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.

### How do you find density of regular shaped solid like a cube or a box?

A solid cube is easy. You measure its mass and its volume. The
volume of a cube is the length of a side cubed. And then density is
the mass divided by the volume.
The question is more difficult for a box where you need to
measure the volume of the material that makes up the box. You need
to measure the outside dimensions of the box and calculate the
volume of the box - INCLUDING the hollow space inside it....

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Area

### Is a space measured in feet or square feet?

Well a space is defined by one or more dimensions . There are an
unlimited amount of dimensions. According to this, you could
represent a space with any of these units mentioned, depending on
how many dimensions make up the space.
For example, if we are describing a scenario where we are tiling
a floor (area), we would use a squared unit (square feet), as the
floor has two dimensions (length and width).
An alternative scenario would be the amount of space...
