Let EBRnE \subset B \subset \mathbb R^n be closed, bounded, convex sets. The monotonicity of the surface areas tells us that

Hn1(E)Hn1(B).\mathcal{H}^{n-1}(\partial E) \leqslant \mathcal{H}^{n-1}(\partial B).

We give quantitative estimates from below of the difference δ(E;B)=Hn1(B)Hn1(E)\delta(E;B)=\mathcal{H}^{n-1}(\partial B)-\mathcal{H}^{n-1}(\partial E) in the cases n=2n=2 and n=3n=3. As an application, considered a decomposition of a closed and bounded set into a number kk of convex pieces, we deduce an estimate from below of the minimal number of convex components that may exist.
