All objects or entity in the universe has certain propertied to them and unique to certain objects such as their length and size, how about we learn about what comprises of length and size itself. Take a quiz and see what you know about length and size.

• 1.

The measuring of magnitude or dimension of an object or how big something is such as its length, height, diameter, perimeter, mass or areas is referred to as?

• A.

Perimeter

• B.

Shape

• C.

Length

• D.

Size

D. Size
Explanation
Size refers to the measuring of magnitude or dimension of an object or how big something is. It encompasses various aspects such as length, height, diameter, perimeter, mass, or areas. Perimeter refers specifically to the measurement of the distance around the outside of a shape. Shape refers to the form or outline of an object, while length is the measurement of the longest dimension of an object. Therefore, size is the most comprehensive term that includes all these measurements.

Rate this question:

• 2.

Size is determined by the process of comparing or measuring objects, which results in the determination of the magnitude of a quantity such as?

• A.

Top and bottom

• B.

• C.

Area or volume

• D.

Length or mass

D. Length or mass
Explanation
Size is determined by comparing or measuring objects, which helps determine the magnitude of a quantity. When comparing objects, we can consider their length or mass. Length refers to the measurement of how long an object is, while mass refers to the amount of matter in an object. Therefore, the correct answer is length or mass as these are the quantities that help determine the size of objects.

Rate this question:

• 3.

Sometimes, an object magnitude is usually expressed as a numerical value of units on a previously established spatial scale such as?

• A.

Inches

• B.

Size

• C.

Scale

• D.

None of the above

A. Inches
Explanation
The correct answer is "Scale". In this context, the question is asking about how an object's magnitude is expressed in terms of units on a spatial scale. The options given are Inches, Size, Scale, and None of the above. Out of these options, the most appropriate one is "Scale" because a spatial scale is a previously established framework or system that assigns numerical values or units to objects based on their size or magnitude. Inches, on the other hand, is a specific unit of measurement within a spatial scale.

One common means of perceiving size is to compare the size of a newly observed object with the size of a familiar object whose size is already known, this comparison is done by human using?

• A.

Visual cues

• B.

Subjective vision

• C.

Binocular

• D.

None of the above

A. Visual cues
Explanation
When perceiving size, humans often compare the size of a newly observed object with the size of a familiar object whose size is already known. This comparison is made using visual cues, which are visual information and clues that help us understand the size and depth of objects. Visual cues include things like relative size, familiar size, and depth perception. Therefore, visual cues are used by humans to compare and perceive the size of objects.

Rate this question:

• 5.

Human have the capacity for depth perception, which can be used to judge which of several objects is closer, and by how much, which allows for some estimation of the size of the more distant relative object to the closer one, this vision is termed?

• A.

Serendipity

• B.

Visual cues

• C.

Bipolar

• D.

Binocular

D. Binocular
Explanation
Binocular vision refers to the ability of humans to perceive depth and judge the relative distance between objects. This is possible due to the capacity for depth perception, which allows us to determine which objects are closer and by how much. By comparing the images received from both eyes, the brain can calculate the disparity between the two images and create a three-dimensional perception of the world. Therefore, binocular vision is the term used to describe this type of vision.

Rate this question:

• 6.

Measures of size may also be determined by sound, visually impaired humans often determine features of their surroundings, such as the size of spaces and objects by?

• A.

Object vibration

• B.

Sound wave

• C.

Heat Signatures

• D.

Echolocation

D. Echolocation
Explanation
Echolocation is a method used by visually impaired individuals to determine the size of spaces and objects by emitting sounds and listening to the echoes that bounce back. This allows them to perceive the distance and shape of their surroundings based on the time it takes for the sound waves to return. By analyzing the echoes, visually impaired individuals can create a mental map of their environment and accurately assess the size of objects and spaces.

Rate this question:

• 7.

In the geometric measurement, the most extended dimension of an object or quantity with the dimension of an object distance is referred to as its?

• A.

Area

• B.

Length

• C.

Mass

• D.

Size

B. Length
Explanation
In geometric measurement, the most extended dimension of an object or quantity with the dimension of an object distance is referred to as its length. This refers to the measurement of how long or wide an object is in one direction. Area, mass, and size are not specifically related to the longest dimension of an object, making them incorrect choices for this question.

Rate this question:

• 8.

The length may be distinguished from height, which is vertical extent, and width or breadth, which are the distance from side to side, measuring across the object at right angles to the length, all these are referred to as length?

• A.

Mass

• B.

Details

• C.

Properties

• D.

Object

C. Properties
Explanation
The given question is asking about the term "length" and how it is distinguished from height and width. The answer "Properties" is correct because length is one of the properties used to describe an object. It is a measurement of the longest dimension of an object, typically referring to the distance from one end to the other in a straight line. Height and width, on the other hand, refer to the vertical and horizontal dimensions respectively. Therefore, "Properties" is the correct answer as it encompasses the various measurements used to describe an object.

After a scholar special relativity theory, the length can no longer be thought of being constant in all reference frames, what is the name of this scholar?

• A.

John Dalton

• B.

Albert Einstein

• C.

Isaac Newton

• D.

Charles Babbage

B. Albert Einstein
Explanation
The correct answer is Albert Einstein. According to the theory of special relativity proposed by Einstein, the concept of length being constant in all reference frames is no longer valid. This theory revolutionized our understanding of space and time, introducing the idea that measurements of length can vary depending on the relative motion of the observer.
