LESSON THIRTY-SIX:DRAW LIKE AN EGYPTIAN


Pyramids and cones

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • So now that we have prisms under our collective belt, we can now begin to understand pyramids.

  • A pyramid is a polyhedron that has a base that can be any polygon and the faces meet at a point called the vertex.


Pyramids and cones1

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • As we discussed in the last lesson, pyramids can be slanted or straight.

  • A straight pyramid is called a regular pyramid.

  • In these type of pyramids, you can draw a line perpendicular to the base which intersects the center of the base and the vertex of the pyramid.


Pyramids and cones2

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • The other type of pyramid is nonregular.

  • In these type of pyramids, you CANNOTdraw a line perpendicular to the base which intersects the center of the base and the vertex of the pyramid.


Pyramids and cones3

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • We can find the lateral area and surface area much the same way as we found them in prisms.


Pyramids and cones4

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • The lateral areacan be found by finding the area of all the lateral triangles of the pyramid.

  • We have to quickly discuss the slant height and altitude of a pyramid.


Pyramids and cones5

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • The altitude is line perpendicular to the base which intersects the pyramid’s vertex.

  • The slant height is a perpendicular bisector to the sides of the base that also intersects the pyramid’s vertex.

Pyramids and cones7

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • Keep in mind that sincenon-regular pyramids and oblique cones do not have a slant height, we CANNOT use the same formula for the surface area of slanted cones and pyramids.

  • However, we can find the volume!


Pyramids and cones8

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • The formula for the area of one of the triangles in a right pyramid is ½ slwith s equaling the length of a base side and l is the slant height.

  • So the formula for the total lateral area is ½ Pl where P is the perimeter of the baseand l is the slant height.


Pyramids and cones9

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • Therefore, the surface area of the pyramid is just the lateral area plus the base area.

  • So a workable formula for the surface area of a pyramid is S = ½ Pl + B where B is the area of the base.


Pyramids and cones10

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • Keep in mind, that you can find the slant height,altitude and base length given two of the others.

  • You can use them in the Pythagoreantheorem to find them.


Pyramids and cones11

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • The volume of a pyramid can be found by the equation V = 1/3 Ba where B is the area of the base and a is the altitude.


Pyramids and cones12

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • You will notice that the formulas for cones are very similar to pyramids.

  • Since they both come to a vertex, they have very similar qualities.


Pyramids and cones13

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • You’ll recall that there are two types of cones.

  • In regular cones there is a perpendicular line that can be drawn from the center of the circular base though the vertex of the cone.


Pyramids and cones14

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • In an oblique cone the perpendicular line doesn’t pass through the center.

  • We won’t be finding the surface area of these today.


Pyramids and cones15

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • The formula for the lateral area of a right cone isrlwhere r is the radius of the base l is the slant height of the coneand r is the radius of the base.

  • That means that the surface area is just adding in the base or SA = rl + r²


Pyramids and cones16

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • The formula for the volume of the cone is just V = 1/3 Ba where B is the base area and ais the cone altitude.


Pyramids and cones17

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • As we look back, you can see that all the volume formulas to date are some version of base area times height (altitude).

  • Prism (V = Bh)

  • Pyramid (V = 1/3 Ba)

  • Cone (V = 1/3 Ba)


Pyramids and cones18

PYRAMIDS AND CONES

  • After this unit, we will learn about cylinders and you will see that they are very similar in surface area, lateral area and volume.
