Is there any difference between "A has the length of about 5cm" and "the length of A is about 5cm"?





The difference is in the grammatical construction.  I think this is useful because novice writers of English tend to use subject-verb-direct object construction.  Varying the construction is a sign of increased mastery and increases the enjoyment for the reader.  Grammar is what makes English a beautiful language and one which is difficult to master.

Another variant, slightly shorter and less formal sounding: A is about 5cm long.
