Instance Variable Java

A variable defined in a Class, for which each object of the class has its own copy. For example in this Class: ``` public class Rectangle { private int width; private int height; public Rectangle(int w, int h) { width = w; height = h; } } ``` `width` and `height` are instance variables. Every Rectangle object that gets constructed gets its own `width` and its own `height`.
