Interview Answer

1 Answer


Form involves the physical properties of the item (mass, size, shape). Fit is how well the item interacts in it's environment or assembly. Function is the action the item is supposed to perform. A car tire has all three. The tire as definite size and mass, it has to fit in the car otherwise it won't roll correctly, and it rolls and therefore decreases the rolling resistance of the car.
