Polyhedron Non-Polyhedron Polyhedron A Polyhedron is a solid that is bounded by polygons, called faces. Polyhedron
A Polyhedron is a solid that is bounded by polygons, called faces. An edge is a line segment formed by the intersection of two faces. Polyhedron
A Polyhedron is a solid that is bounded by polygons, called faces. An edge is a line segment formed by the intersection of two faces. A vertex of a Polyhedron is a point where three or more edges meet.
Polyhedron A Polyhedron is a solid that is bounded by polygons, called faces. An edge is a line segment formed by the intersection of two faces.
A vertex of a Polyhedron is a point where three or more edges meet. Examples: Polyhedron - Prism A Prism is a polyhedron with the following features: It
has two bases that are congruent, parallel polygons. The sides are all parallelograms. Examples: Rectangular
Prism Triangular Prism Polyhedron - Pyramid A Pyramid is a polyhedron with the following features: It
has a single base that is a polygon. The sides are all triangles. Examples: Polyhedron Pyramid
Triangular Pentagonal Non-Polyhedron - Cylinder A Cylinder is a non-polyhedron with the following features: It
has two bases that are congruent, parallel circles. It has no sides; its edges are round. Cylinder Non-Polyhedron - Cone
A Cone is a non-polyhedron with the following features: It has a singe base, which is a circle. It has no sides; its edges are round.
Cone Non-Polyhedron - Sphere A Sphere is a non-polyhedron with the following features: It is a set of all points in space equidistant from a given point, called the center.
It possess all the lines a circle does, such as radius, chord and diameter. Sphere Example 1a
Tell whether the solid is a polyhedron. If its, name the polyhedron and state the number of faces, vertices, and edges it has. Example 1a Tell whether the solid is a polyhedron. If its, name the polyhedron and state the number of faces, vertices, and edges it has. Yes, the solid is a rectangular prism.
It has 6 faces, 8 vertices and 12 edges Example 1b Tell whether the solid is a polyhedron. If its, name the polyhedron and state the number of faces, vertices, and edges it has. Example 1b
Tell whether the solid is a polyhedron. If its, name the polyhedron and state the number of faces, vertices, and edges it has. Yes, the solid is a hexagonal pyramid. It has 7 faces, 7 vertices and 12 edges Example 1c
Tell whether the solid is a polyhedron. If its, name the polyhedron and state the number of faces, vertices, and edges it has. Example 1c Tell whether the solid is a polyhedron. If its, name the polyhedron and state the number of faces, vertices, and edges it has.
No, the solid is not a polyhedron. It is a cone. Example 1d Tell whether the solid is a polyhedron. If its, name the polyhedron and state the number of faces, vertices, and edges it has.
Example 1d Tell whether the solid is a polyhedron. If its, name the polyhedron and state the number of faces, vertices, and edges it has. Yes, the solid is a triangular prism. It has 5 faces, 6 vertices, and 9 edges
Regular Polyhedra A polyhedron is regular if all of its faces are congruent regular polygons. Regular Polyhedra A polyhedron is regular if all of its faces are congruent regular
polygons. A polyhedron is convex if any two points on its surface can be connected by a segment in or on the polyhedron. Regular Polyhedra
A polyhedron is regular if all of its faces are congruent regular polygons. If this segment goes outside the polyhedron, then it is concave. Regular Polyhedra There
