## Definition

**Depth** is linear measure in a dimension perpendicular to both length and breadth.

The choice of **depth** is often arbitrary, although in two-dimensional diagrams of three-dimensional figures, **depth** is usually imagined as being the dimension perpendicular to the plane the figure is drawn in.
