    c. three dimensions- example; the position of a satellite relative to your house

    Explanation;

    Specifying the position of an object is essential in describing motion

    In one dimension we describe the position of an object relative to the point of origin. In two dimensions, either cartesian or polar coordinates may be used. In three dimensions, cartesian or spherical polar coordinates are used, as well as other coordinate systems for specific geometries.
