Definitions for "Length"
The persistance of a wine's finish.
A tasting term, describing how long the flavour of the wine persists on the palate after it has been swallowed. A lengthy persistence of flavour may be taken as a sign of quality, but to time it, as some people do, is going too far.
A wine has "length" if it has a long "finish" or after-taste. It's a sign of quality if you can still taste a wine long after swallowing it.
The longest, or longer, dimension of any object, in distinction from breadth or width; extent of anything from end to end; the longest line which can be drawn through a body, parallel to its sides; as, the length of a church, or of a ship; the length of a rope or line.
A portion of space or of time considered as measured by its length; -- often in the plural.

Keywords:  metres, nvp, sctp, utp, testers
A length is approximately three metres.
One of the test parameters used when testing Category 5E or Category 6 UTP, FTP or ScTP Permanent Links or channels. For Permanent Link tests, the length should not exceed 90 metres, and for Channel tests the length should not exceed 100 metres. Before testing a site, an important factor to remember is that you have to set up the NVP for the cable. The NVP, or Nominal Velocity of Propagation is a value that the tester uses in its calculation of the cable length. A signal is sent down the length of cable and the measured time (propagation delay) is then multiplied by the NVP value to determine the length of cable. The NVP value is unique to each cable manufacturer, and you should check with them what the value is for their cable. The default NVP on most testers is 72%, but most of the locally produced cable differs from this, so please check it first.

Used to describe a ball hit down the line or cross court that makes its second bounce and dies near the bottom of the back wall.
Rated on an open ended scale, length describes the realtive length of a bowling ball. Bowling balls with higher numbers will tend to go longer before starting to change direction. Bowling balls with lower numbers will tend to change direction earlier. Length numbers are not intended to place a numerical measurement of length. Using these numbers to try and predict the exact distance between the bowling balls being compared will not neccesarily be reflected correctly. A bowling ball's reaction is determined by many different factors. When choosing a bowling ball it is important to keep those differences in mind. Bowling balls respond to the forces applied to them under certain conditions. A ball designed to hook more may hook less under certain conditions than a ball designed to hook less.

Length is a very important consideration when choosing a rope. The most common lengths of rope are 50m, 55m and 60m. The most common rope length in the UK is 50m. It is suitable for most climbs found in the UK and is nice and light to carry. A 55m rope gives you a little more flexibility when you just need that extra bit of length! If you plan to take a trip to the Alps then a 60m rope is advisable. Although it is heavier you will find that a lot of the routes require a full 60m length for both the climbs and the abseils. Donâ€(tm)t get caught short, youâ€(tm)ve been warned
