Force. Its SI unit is Newton (N). It is also measured in dyne (C.G.S. system). Also in kgf and gf where kgf=Unit of force in N/9.8 and gf=Unit of force in dyne/9.8.

Surface area is the total space that a three-dimensional object occupies. When using the mathematical formula for its shape you get the surface area measurement.

Angular measurement between two line, when one of them is surface line and another is the line which connect a point on the surface to the peak of the object is known as angular elevation of that object with reference to the the perticular on the surface.

In general, the volume will also increase. If the shape remains the same, the volume will increase faster than the surface area. Specifically, the surface area is proportional to the square of an object's diameter (or any other linear measurement), while the volume is proportional to the cube of any linear measurement.

Area is a two-dimensional measurement. It tells you how big a two dimensional object is or how large the surface of a three-dimensional object is.Volume is a three dimensional measurement. It tells you how big the inside of a three-dimensional object is or how much a three-dimensional object can hold inside.
