- A single aspect of a given thing.
- A measure of spatial extent in a particular direction, such as height, width or breadth, or depth.
- (geometry) Any of the independent coordinates used to specify uniquely the location of a point in a space.
- (physics) One of the physical property regarded as a fundamental measure of a physical quantity, such as mass, length and time.
The dimensions of velocity are length divided by time
- (computing) Any of the independent ranges of indices in a multidimensional array.
- (science fiction) An alternative universe or plane of existence.
- (transitive) To mark, cut or shape something to specified dimensions.

Di*men"sion (?), n. [L.
dimensio, fr. dimensus, p. p. of dimetiri to
measure out; di- = dis- + metiri to measure: cf. F.
dimension. See Measure.] 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.
Gentlemen of more than ordinary
dimensions. W. Irving.
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. pl. (Phys.) The manifoldness
with which the fundamental units of time, length, and mass are
involved in determining the units of other physical quantities.
Thus, since the unit of velocity varies directly as the unit of
length and inversely as the unit of time, the dimensions of
velocity are said to be length ÷ time; the
dimensions of work are mass × (length)2
÷ (time)2; the dimensions of density are
mass ÷ (length)3.
Dimension lumber, Dimension
scantling, or Dimension stock
(Carp.), lumber for building, etc., cut to the sizes
usually in demand, or to special sizes as ordered. --
Dimension stone, stone delivered from the
quarry rough, but brought to such sizes as are requisite for cutting
to dimensions given.
