solid Geometry Types

  • Polyhedron  -  Is a solid with no curved edges or sides.
    • Prism Solids  -  Prisms are solids with two congruent parallel polygon ends that are exactly the same.
      • Oblique prism  -  Has with both bases not alligned above each other and the center not at 90° to the other base center.
      • Right prism  -  Has both bases directly above each other and having the centers at 90° to each others base.
      • Cube  -  Is a regular polyhedron with square faces.
      • Right Hexagonal Prism  -  Has hexagonal bases and each face is a regular polygon with equal sides and equal angles.
      • Right Octagonal prism  -
      • Right Pentagonal Prism  -  Has pentagonal bases and each face is a regular polygon with equal sides and qual angles.
      • Right Rectangular Prism  -  Has six faces that are rectangles with equal sides and equal angles.
      • Right Square Prism  -  Has square bases, four faces that are rectangles with equal sides and equal angles.
      • Right Triangular prism  -
    • Pyramid Solids  -  Pyramids are solids with one polygon base and lateral faces that taper to an apex.
      • Oblique Pyramid  -  The apex is not alligned above the center at 90° to the base.
      • Right Pyramid  -  The apex is directly above the center at 90° to the base.
      • Right Pentagonal Pyramid  -  Has a pentagon base and the apex alligned above the center of the base.
      • Right Square Pyramid  -  Has a square base and the apex alligned above the center of the base.
      • Right Triangular Pyramid  -  Has a triangle base and the apex alligned above the center of the base.
    • Wedge Solids  -  Wedges have two triangle ends and three polygon sides.
  • Non-polyhedron  -  Is a solid with curved edges or sides.
    • Cone  -  Cones have one circular base tapering to an apex.
      • Oblique Cone  -  The apex is not alligned above the center at 90° to the base.
      • Right Cone  -  Has a circle base with the apex alligned at 90° above the center of the base.
    • Cylinder  -  Cylinders have two circular parallel congruent bases.
      • Oblique Cylinder  -  Both bases not alligned above each other and the center not at 90° to the other base center.
      • Right Cylinder  -  Both bases direictly above each other and having the centers at 90° to each others base.
      • Right Elliptic Cylinder  -  No parallel lines and both bases are ellipses.
      • Right Hollow Cylinder  -  A hollow core with both bases direictly above each other and having the center at 90° to each others base.
    • Ellipsoid  -  Ellipsoids have a spherical like shape with an ellipse cross section.
    • Paraboloid  -
    • Sphere  -  All points equally spaces from a given point of a three dimensional solid.
    • Torus  -  Is shaped like a donut.
