## Solid Geometry Solid geometry, also known as three-dimensional geometry, is a branch of mathematics that deals with the properties and relationships of three-dimensional objects, such as cubes, spheres, cylinders, cones, and pyramids.  It is a fundamental area of study in mathematics and has many practical applications in fields such as engineering, architecture, physics, and computer graphics.  Solid geometry builds on the concepts of plane geometry, extending them to three dimensions.  Solid geometry plays a crucial role in many areas of science, engineering, and technology, including computer-aided design (CAD), architecture, and physics.  It provides a foundation for understanding the geometry of the physical world around us and is essential for solving many practical problems in a wide range of fields.

Some important concepts in solid geometry include:

• The volume and surface area of various three-dimensional shapes and figures
• The properties of prisms, such as the rectangular prism and triangular prism
• The properties of pyramids, such as the square pyramid and triangular pyramid
• The properties of cylinders, cones, and spheres, including formulas for their volumes and surface areas
• The use of coordinate geometry to describe the location and properties of points, lines, and shapes in three-dimensional space.
