The radius is a meausrement from the centre to the circumference (edge) of a circle or sphere. It is equal to half the diameter.

Noise Level

This denotes how much noise the vacuum cleaner makes while it's running.

A quieter vacuum makes for a nicer cleaning experience, and you're less likely to annoy your neighbours!

Weight

The weight of the vacuum cleaner, including all attachments that fit onto the device.

A lighter weight makes the vacuum easier to push, and makes carrying it up and down stairs less of a chore.
