Volume (V) is defined as the number of spatial units enclosed within a bounded area of space. Each unit of volume has width, height, and depth, so volume is measured in the chosen units cubed (unit3). In engineering, the most commonly used unit of volume is the the...

Length (L) is defined as the distance between two points, measured along a defined path (such as a straight or curved edge of a shape or solid). Length is one of the seven basic SI units, and is normally measured in metres (m) in engineering applications. Mathematical...


Area (A) is defined as the number of square units enclosed within a boundary, and is measured in the chosen unit of length squared (unit2). Units of Area It is common practice to use square metres (m2) in engineering applications, particularly if the result is to be...
