  # Geometry vs. Measurement — What's the Difference? ## Definitions

#### Geometry➦

Geometry (from the Ancient Greek: γεωμετρία; geo- "earth", -metron "measurement") is, with arithmetic, one of the oldest branches of mathematics. It is concerned with properties of space that are related with distance, shape, size, and relative position of figures.

#### Measurement➦

Measurement is the quantification of attributes of an object or event, which can be used to compare with other objects or events. The scope and application of measurement are dependent on the context and discipline.

#### Geometry➦

The mathematics of the properties, measurement, and relationships of points, lines, angles, surfaces, and solids.

#### Measurement➦

The action of measuring something
Accurate measurement is essential
A telescope with which precise measurements can be made

#### Geometry➦

A system of geometry
Euclidean geometry.

#### Measurement➦

The act of measuring or the process of being measured.

#### Geometry➦

A geometry restricted to a class of problems or objects
Solid geometry.

#### Measurement➦

A system of measuring
Measurement in miles.

#### Geometry➦

A book on geometry.

#### Measurement➦

The dimension, quantity, or capacity determined by measuring
The measurements of a room.

#### Geometry➦

Configuration; arrangement.

#### Measurement➦

The act of measuring.

A surface shape.

#### Measurement➦

Value (quantity, magnitude, extent or amount) determined by an act of measuring.

#### Geometry➦

A physical arrangement suggesting geometric forms or lines.

#### Measurement➦

The act or result of measuring; mensuration; as, measurement is required.

#### Geometry➦

The branch of mathematics dealing with spatial relationships.

#### Measurement➦

The extent, size, capacity, amount. or quantity ascertained by measuring; as, its measurement is five acres.

#### Geometry➦

A mathematical system that deals with spatial relationships and that is built on a particular set of axioms; a subbranch of geometry which deals with such a system or systems.

#### Measurement➦

The act or process of measuring;
The measurements were carefully done
His mental measurings proved remarkably accurate

#### Geometry➦

(countable) The observed or specified spatial attributes of an object, etc.

#### Geometry➦

A mathematical object comprising representations of a space and of its spatial relationships.

#### Geometry➦

That branch of mathematics which investigates the relations, properties, and measurement of solids, surfaces, lines, and angles; the science which treats of the properties and relations of magnitudes; the science of the relations of space.

#### Geometry➦

A treatise on this science.

#### Geometry➦

The pure mathematics of points and lines and curves and surfaces
