FAQs

Height is used two ways:

  • when used along with base to describe the measurement perpendicular to that base, it has a formal definition (see below);
  • when used in connection with length, width, and/or depth, its use is more casual (see length, width, height, depth).

Definition: The length of a perpendicular from the base to the farthest point of a two- or three-dimensional figure.
