What is the difference between נמוכה and קצרה?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/radagastthebrown

Short in length/time = קצר (opposite - ארוך)

Short in height = נמוך (opposite - גבוה)

Examples:

The tree is short = העץ נמוך

It's a long way home = זאת דרך ארוכה הביתה

is this only the opposite of tall or also the opposite of long?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Walrosse

Only of tall, the opposite of long is "קצר".

Could someone explain this difference a little more? The difference of נמוכה and קצרה, please.

Someone on another thread said that "נמוך" is "short" in height and that "קצר" is "short" in length or time.
