### Chapter 13: Solid Shapes and their Volume & Surface Area

Section 13.1: Polyhedra and other Solid Shapes

• A polyhedron is a closed, connected shape in space whose outer surfaces consist of polygons

• A face of a polyhedron is one of the polygons that makes up the outer surface

• An edge is a line segment where two faces meet

• A vertex is a corner point where multiple faces join together

• Polyhedra are categorized by the numbers of faces, edges, and vertices, along with the types of polygons that are faces.

Examples of Polyhedra

Cube

Pyramid Icosidodecahedron

• Find the number of and describe the faces of the following octahedron, and then find the number of edges and vertices.

• Find the number of and describe the faces of the following icosidodecahedron, and then find the number of edges and vertices.

• Spheres and cylinders are not polyhedral because their surfaces are not made of polygons.

Special Types of Polyhedra

• A prism consists of two copies of a polygon lying in parallel planes with faces connecting the corresponding edges of the polygons

• Bases: the two original polygons

• Right prism: the top base lies directly above the

bottom base without any twisting

• Oblique prism: top face is shifted instead of

being directly above the bottom

• Named according to its base (rectangular prism)

More Special Polyhedra

• A pyramid consists of a base that is a polygon,

a point called the apex that lies on a different

plane, and triangles that connect the apex to

the base’s edges

• Right pyramid: apex lies directly above the

center of the base

• Oblique pyramid: apex is not above the center

• Adding a pyramid to each pentagon of an icosidodecahedron creates a new polyhedron with 80 triangular faces called a pentakisicosidodecahedron.

• A cylinder consists of 2 copies of a closed curve (circle, oval, etc) lying in parallel planes with a 2-dimensional surface wrapped around to connect the 2 curves

• Right and oblique cylinders are defined similarly to those of prisms

• A cone consists of a closed curve, a point in a different plane, and a surface joining the point to the curve

• A Platonic Solid is a polyhedron with each face being a regular polygon of the same number of sides, and the same number of faces meet at every vertex.

• Only 5 such solids:

• Tetrahedron: 4 equilateral triangles as faces, 3 triangles meet at each vertex

• Cube: 6 square faces, 3 meet at each vertex

• Octahedron: 8 equilateral triangles as faces, 4 meet at each vertex

• Dodecahedron: 12 regular pentagons as faces, 3 at each vertex

• Icosahedron: 20 equilateral triangles as faces, 5 at each vertex

### Section 13.2: Patterns and Surface Area

Making Polyhedra from 2-dimensional surfaces

• Many polyhedral can be constructed by folding and joining two-dimensional patterns (called nets) of polygons.

• Helpful for calculating surface area of a 3-D shape, i.e. the total area of its faces, because you can add the areas of each polygon in the pattern (as seen on the homework)

• http://folk.uib.no/nmioa/kalender/

• Given a solid shape, a cross-section of that shape is formed by slicing it with a plane.

• The cross-sections of polyhedral are polygons.

• The direction and location of the plane can result in several different cross-sections

• Examples of cross-sections of the cube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rc8X1_1901Q

### Section 13.3: Volumes of Solid Shapes

• Def: The volume of a solid shape is the number of unit cubes that it takes to fill the shape without gap or overlap

• Volume Principles:

• Moving Principle: If a solid shape is moved rigidly without stretching or shrinking it, the volume stays the same

• Additive Principle: If a finite number of solid shapes are combined without overlap, then the total volume is the sum of volumes of the individual shapes

• Cavalieri’s Principle: The volume of a shape and a shape made by shearing (shifting horizontal slices) the original shape are the same

• Def: The height of a prism or cylinder is the perpendicular distance between the planes containing the bases

• Formula: For a prism or cylinder, the volume is given by

• The formula doesn’t depend on whether the shape is right or oblique.

• Ex 1: The volume of a rectangular box with length , width , and height is

• Ex 2: The volume of a circular cylinder with the radius of the base being and height is

• Def: The height of a pyramid or cone is the perpendicular length between the apex and the base.

• Formula:For a pyramid or cone, the volume is given by

• Again, the formula works whether the shape is right or oblique

• Ex 3: Calculate the volume of the

following octahedron.

• Formula: The volume of a sphere with radius is given by

• See Activity 13O for explanation of why this works.

• As with area and perimeter, increasing surface area generally increases volume, but not always.

• With a fixed surface area, the cube has the largest volume of any rectangular prism (not of any polyhedron) and the sphere has the largest volume of any 3-dimensional object.

### Section 13.4: Volumes of Submerged Objects

• The volume of an 3-dimensional object can be calculated by determining the amount of displaced liquid when the object is submerged.

• Ex: If a container has 500 mL of water in it, and the water level rises to 600 mL after a toy is submerged, how many is the volume of the toy?

• Archimedes’s Principle: An object that floats displaces the amount of water that weighs as much as the object
