Measuring the fourth dimension 1999-06-07 From Suzanne Hall:Hi! The other day, two of my students asked a very interesting question: Is the fourth dimension measured with hypercubes? Their reasoning went like this: Lines are 1D and are measured with line segments, which are part of a line. Planes are 2D and are measured with squares, which are part of a plane. Space is 3D and is measured with cubes, which are part of space. So, logically, hypercubes would be used to measure the fourth dimension.Answered by Chris Fisher.
