would measuring dimensions of a solid always be possible? Explain
thanks =]

  • chemistry -

    Do you mean in determining the volume of that solid? If so, we can find the volume from the measured dimensions only for geometrical solids (cube, rectangle, cylinder, cone, sphere, etc.).
    For irregular solids, measurement of dimensions can't be done very precisely.
