# finite

Finite is limited in extent or scope. In mathematics, a **finite set** is such that the number of elements it contains can be described by a natural
number. For instance, the set of integers between –18 and 5 is finite,
because it has a natural number (22) of elements. The set of all prime
numbers, on the other hand, is not finite.

In physics, "finite" is used to mean both "not infinite" and "non-zero."
