The word size may refer to how big something is. In particular:

• Measurement
• Dimensions: length, width, height, diameter, perimeter, area, volume
• Clothing sizes such as shoe size or dress size
• Body dimensions
• In statistics (hypothesis testing), the size of the test refers to the rate of false positives, denoted by α. Measurement is the process of estimating the magnitude of some attribute of an object such as its length or weight relative to some standard ( unit of measurement) such as Length is the long Dimension of any object The length of a thing is the distance between its ends its linear extent as measured from end to end Length is the long Dimension of any object The length of a thing is the distance between its ends its linear extent as measured from end to end Height is the measurement of vertical Distance, but has two meanings in common use Geometry, a diameter of a Circle is any straight Line segment that passes through the center of the circle and whose Endpoints are on the The perimeter is the distance around a given two-dimensional object Area is a Quantity expressing the two- Dimensional size of a defined part of a Surface, typically a region bounded by a closed Curve. The volume of any solid plasma vacuum or theoretical object is how much three- Dimensional space it occupies often quantified numerically There are many different systems of clothing measurement around the world A shoe size is a numerical indication of the fitting size of a Shoe for a person In Clothing, dress size refers to a set of standard dimensions for dresses and other women's garments such as tops Skirts and Trousers. Anthropometry ( Greek άνθρωπος man and μέτρον measure literally meaning "measurement of humans" in Physical anthropology, refers to the Human height varies according to both "nature" and "nurture". Statistics is a mathematical science pertaining to the collection analysis interpretation or explanation and presentation of Data. A statistical hypothesis test is a method of making statistical decisions using experimental data In Statistics, the terms Type I error (also α error, or false positive) and type II error ( β error, or a false negative
• In computing, filesize
• size (Unix), a command-line Unix tool. Computing is usually defined like the activity of using and developing Computer technology Computer hardware and software. File size Measures the Size of a Computer file. Typically it is measured in Bytes with a Prefix. size is a command line utility originally written for use with the Unix -like operating systems
• Magnitude or size of a mathematical object. The magnitude of a mathematical object is its size a property by which it can be larger or smaller than other objects of the same kind in technical terms an Ordering
• Magnitude of brightness or intensity of a star or an earthquake as measured on a logarithmic scale. Definition and base Logarithmic scales are either defined for ratios of the underlying quantity or one has to agree to measure
• In mathematics there are, in addition to the dimensions mentioned above (equal if there is an isometry), various other concepts of size for sets:

Size can also refer to:

• Sizing, gelatinous or glutinous substances used as a glaze or filler for porous materials such as paper or cloth
In Mathematics the concept of a measure generalizes notions such as "length" "area" and "volume" (but not all of its applications have to do with In Mathematics, the cardinality of a set is a measure of the "number of elements of the set" In Set theory, an ordinal number, or just ordinal, is the Order type of a Well-ordered set. Sizing or size is a Substance that is applied to Porous materials as a Glaze or Filler.
