Solid angle: In geometry, a solid angle is the two-dimensional angle in three-dimensional space that an object subtends at a point. It is a measure of how large the object appears to an observer looking from that point. In the International System of Units, a solid angle is expressed in a dimensionless unit called a steradian.
