Di`men´sion
n.1.Measure in a single line, as length, breadth, height, thickness, or circumference; extension; measurement; - usually, in the plural, measure in length and breadth, or in length, breadth, and thickness; extent; size; as, the dimensions of a room, or of a ship; the dimensions of a farm, of a kingdom.
Space of dimension
extension that has length but no breadth or thickness; a straight or curved line.
Space of two dimensions
extension which has length and breadth, but no thickness; a plane or curved surface.
Space of three dimensions
extension which has length, breadth, and thickness; a solid.
Space of four dimensions
as imaginary kind of extension, which is assumed to have length, breadth, thickness, and also a fourth imaginary dimension. Space of five or six, or more dimensions is also sometimes assumed in mathematics.
2.Extent; reach; scope; importance; as, a project of large dimensions.
3.(Math.) The degree of manifoldness of a quantity; as, time is quantity having one dimension; volume has three dimensions, relative to extension.
4.(Alg.) A literal factor, as numbered in characterizing a term. The term dimensions forms with the cardinal numbers a phrase equivalent to degree with the ordinal; thus, a2b2c is a term of five dimensions, or of the fifth degree.
5.(Phys.) The manifoldness with which the fundamental units of time, length, and mass are involved in determining the units of other physical quantities.
