Having both length and width, but no thickness

Having length and width and giving the illusion of a three-dimensional object or space.

work which is created on a flat surface

Flat area having height and width but no actual depth.

involving two dimensions

lacking the expected range or depth; not designed to give an illusion or depth; "a film with two-dimensional characters"; "a flat two-dimensional painting"

A figure that has length and width but not height (i.e., a plane figure such as a rectangle or circle).

An area defined by length and width

A flat surface, which has only height and width.

Something that has only two dimensions, a sheet of paper with no thickness for example.

Having two dimensions (height and width); referring to something that is flat.

having height and width but not depth. A two-dimensional plane consists of points or lines defined by coordinates that are relative to two axes, for example, the X axis and the Y axis.

Having height and width but not depth. Also referred to as 2-D.

having two dimensions or extensions in one direction

adj. Existing in reference to two measures, such as height and width--for example, a two-dimensional model drawn with reference to an x-axis and a y-axis, or a two-dimensional array of numbers placed in rows and columns. See also Cartesian coordinates.
