**dimension**is a structure that categorizes facts and measures in order to enable users to answer business questions. Commonly**used dimensions**are people, products, place and time. In a data warehouse,**dimensions**provide structured labeling information to otherwise unordered numeric measures.What does dimension?

Examples: width, depth and height are

**dimensions**. A line has one**dimension**, a square has two**dimensions**, and a cube has three**dimensions**. In Physics it can also mean any physical measurement such as length, time, mass.What are the different dimensions?

When someone mentions “

**different dimensions**,” we tend to think of things like parallel universes – alternate realities that exist parallel to our own, but where things work or happened differently. The first**dimension**, as already noted, is that which gives it length (aka. the x-axis).1

## How do you determine the dimensions?

**Steps**

- Measure the length, width and height of a single unit in either inches or meters. Whichever unit of measurement you use, measure all dimensions in the same unit of measurement.
- Multiply the length, width and height of the unit together.
- Divide the result by 1728 if your measurements were in inches.
- Finished.

## What is dimension and the types of dimension?

A

**Dimension**table is a table in a star schema of a data warehouse. Data warehouses are built using**dimensional**data models which consist of fact and**dimension**tables.**Dimension**tables are used to describe**dimensions**. They contain**dimension**keys, values and attributes.3

## What is the first dimension?

The 1

**Dimension**. If you create another point, and make a line between the two points you have an object in the**first dimension**. It only has length, no width or depth. The**First Dimension**is the LINE. It contains an infinite number of points.4

## How many dimensions are there in a line?

In its simplest form: a line describes

**one dimension**, a plane describes**two dimensions**, and a cube describes**three dimensions**.5

## How do you read dimensions?

For example, a window that is 24 inches wide by 30 inches tall would be written as 24" X 30". In the manufacturing industry, this standard window size is referred to as a 2030 or 2 feet by 3 feet. In a rectangular swimming pool, the

**dimension**might**read**16' X 30' X 9' or 16 feet wide by 30 feet long and 9 feet deep.6

## What is a 3 dimensional?

more An object with

**three dimensions**(such as height, width and depth) like any object in the real world. Example: your body is**three**-**dimensional**. Also known as "3D". See: Two-**Dimensional**.7

## What are the six dimensions?

**Six**-dimensional space is any space that has

**six dimensions**,

**six**degrees of freedom, and that needs

**six**pieces of data, or coordinates, to specify a location in this space. There are an infinite number of these, but those of most interest are simpler ones that model some aspect of the environment.

## What is the fourth dimension?

Science. Time in physics, the continued progress of existence and events. Four-

**dimensional**space, the concept of a**fourth**spatial**dimension**. Spacetime, the unification of time and space as a four-**dimensional**continuum. Minkowski space, the mathematical setting for special relativity.9

## What is the difference between a fact table and a dimension table?

The

**fact table**mainly consists of business**facts**and foreign keys that refer to primary keys**in the dimension tables**. A**dimension table**consists mainly of descriptive attributes that are textual fields.**In a comparison table**, more**dimensions**are presented than the**fact tables**.10

## What is dimension in health?

Wellness is much more than merely physical

**health**, exercise or nutrition. It is the full integration of states of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The model used by our campus includes social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual and physical wellness.11

## How do you measure dimensions?

Allow a minimum of 3mm extra to each

**dimension**for the fitting . Be sure that the length and width do correspond to the opening of the box. You can also provide us with a board size of the box. To do this fully open out the carton until it is just a single flat sheet and**measure**the length and width of the board.12

## Why is it important to dimension?

It involves lengths and angles as well as geometrical properties such as flatness and straightness.

**Dimensional**measurement is of fundamental**importance**for interchangeability and global trade. It is how we ensure that things will fit together.13

## How can you find the dimension?

To determine the dim weight of a package, you must first measure the length, width and height of the package in inches using the longest point on each side, taking into account any bulges or misshaped sides. You then multiply those

**dimensions**to**get**the cubic size of the package.14

## What are the three dimensions of Earth?

**Three**-

**dimensional**space.

**Three**-

**dimensional**space is a geometric

**three**-parameter model of the physical universe (without considering time) in which all known matter exists. These

**three dimensions**can be labeled by a combination of

**three**chosen from the terms length, width, height, depth, and breadth.

15

## What is the third dimension?

the additional

**dimension**by which a solid object is distinguished from a planar projection of itself or from any planar object. something that heightens the reality, vividness, or significance of a factual account, sequence of happenings, etc.: The illustrations added a**third dimension**to the story.16

## What are the two dimensions?

In Mathematics, it is commonly represented by the symbol ℝ

**. For a generalization of the concept, see**^{2}**dimension**. Two-**dimensional**space can be seen as a projection of the physical universe onto a plane. Usually, it is thought of as a Euclidean space and the two**dimensions**are called length and width.17

## What is 2 dimensional?

A shape with only

**two dimensions**(such as width and height) and no thickness. Squares, Circles, Triangles, etc are**two dimensional**objects. Also known as "2D". See: Three-**Dimensional**. Plane Geometry.18

## What is a dimension in drafting?

Projection

**lines**are used to indicate the extremities of a**dimension**. They are generally drawn up to 1 mm from the outline of the object.**Dimension lines**are used to label a particular**dimension**. They have one or more arrowheads, which are typically 3 mm long x 1 mm wide.19

## What is the dimensional equation?

**Dimensional Formula**of physical quantity in Physics means a expression that shows how & which of the fundamental quantities are involved and what are their

**dimensions**. For example --

**Dimensional Formula**of Speed is [M0, L, T -1].

## What is a conformed dimension?

In data warehousing, a

**conformed dimension**is a**dimension**that has the same meaning to every fact with which it relates.**Conformed dimensions**allow facts and measures to be categorized and described in the same way across multiple facts and/or data marts, ensuring consistent reporting across the enterprise.
