Faces

FaceS

We know a face is a flat finite surface on a shape.

What is a face?

This makes the term easy to use for polyhedra and 2D shapes. But for a sphere…does it have zero faces?


Faces1

Faces

There is some disagreement about curved faces. 3D shapes that aren’t polyhedra don’t follow the laws and cause problems.

But for us, a face is defined as a finite flat surface so we will use that definition and think of a sphere as having zero faces.


Vertices and edges

Vertices and edges

Vertex -

A point (with zero size) where two or more edges meet.

Edge -

Defining vertex and edge is a little easier.

A line segment dividing two faces.

Note: An edge may not always be connected with two vertices. The hemisphere and cone are examples of this.

F v e 2 euler s formula

F + V – E = 2(Euler’s formula)

Let’s try a hemisphere.

It has face(s).

Can you think of a 3D shape where this formula doesn’t work?

It has vertex / vertices.

1

It has edge(s).

Let’s substitute these into the equation.

F + V – E = 2

= 0

1 + 0 – 1

???


F v e euler s formula

F + V – E = ???(Euler’s formula)

F + V – E = 2 only works perfectly for shapes that are .

convex polyhedra

For 3D non-polyhedra, F + V – E may equal 0, 1 or 2 (and sometimes other numbers).

This value, we call χ (read as chi.)

F + V – E = 6 + 8 – 12 = 2

F + V – E = 8 + 6 – 12 = 2

F + 12 – 24 = -2, F = 10

F + V – E = 11 + 18 – 27 = 2

2 + 0 – 2 = 0
