These solids are convex.

These solids are non-convex.

Convex solids have faces that all point, curve or bulge outwards, while non-convex solids have some faces that point, curve or cave inwards, having ‘dents’ or ‘holes’. A simple test to determine whether a solid is convex or non-convex is to draw straight lines between any two faces on the solid. If every line you can draw lies completely inside the solid, then the solid is convex.

If all or part of any line you can draw lies outside the solid, then the solid is non-convex.

Solids have flat faces and curved faces. This cylinder has two ﬂat faces and one curved face. The ﬂat faces are circles, and the curved face is a rectangle (when ﬂattened).

A solid whose faces are all ﬂat is called a polyhedron. The plural of ‘polyhedron’ is ‘polyhedra’ or ‘polyhedrons’. A hexagonal prism is a polyhedron. A cylinder, however, is not because it has a curved face. Just as polygons such as pentagons, hexagons and octagons are named according to the number of sides they have, polyhedra are named according to the number of faces they have. For example, a tetrahedron has four faces (tetra = 4), and a hexahedron has six faces (hexa = 6).

4-04 Special solids A cross-section of a solid is a ‘slice’ of the solid, cut across it, parallel to its end faces, rather than along it. These diagrams show cross-sections of a rectangular prism, a sphere and a square pyramid. cross-section cross-section

Rectangular prism

Sphere

Square pyramid

Note that the cross-sections of a rectangular prism are congruent (identical) rectangles, the cross-sections of a sphere are circles (but of different sizes), and the cross-sections of a square pyramid are squares (again, of different sizes).

Prisms and pyramids Prisms and pyramids are special types of polyhedra. A prism has the same (uniform) cross-section along its length. Each cross-section is a polygon. Either of the end faces is called the prism’s base. Prisms take their names from their base. The prism shown below has trapezium-shaped cross-sections, identical and parallel to its base. This is a trapezoidal prism.

Trapezoidal prism

A prism is either right or oblique, as shown in the diagrams of triangular prisms below.

not right angles

right angles

Right prism

Oblique prism

A right prism stands upright, while an oblique prism stands at an angle or slant. ‘Oblique’ means ‘slanting’ or ‘at an angle’, while ‘right’ means ‘at right angles’. A pyramid has a pointed top called the apex. The face opposite the apex is a polygon and is called the pyramid’s base. A pyramid’s cross-sections have the same shape as the base but are not the same size. The pyramid on the right has a triangular base, so it is called a triangular pyramid.

A pyramid is also either right or oblique, as shown in the diagrams of square pyramids on the right.

Right pyramid

Oblique pyramid

Cylinders, cones and spheres Cylinders, cones and spheres are not polyhedra because they have curved faces. Although it has a uniform cross-section, a cylinder is not a prism because its cross-sections are circles, which are not polygons. Although it has an apex, a cone is not a pyramid because its base is a circle, which is not a polygon. Like prisms and pyramids, cylinders and cones can be either right or oblique, as shown below.

A sphere is a perfectly circular solid, the shape of a ball. All of the points on a sphere’s surface are exactly the same distance from the centre of the sphere. In this diagram of a sphere, O is the centre and P and Q are points on the surface of the sphere. The distance OP is the same as the distance OQ.

b Yes, all cross-sections of this solid are identical pentagons. c A prism, because the cross-section is uniform and is a polygon.

Just for the record

Rubik’s cube Rubik’s Cube is a mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by the Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernö Rubik. It is said to be the world’s best-selling toy, with over 300 000 000 Rubik’s Cubes sold around the world. In Rubik’s Cube, 26 individual little cubes or cubies make up the big cube. Each layer of nine cubies can twist and the layers can overlap. Typically, the faces of the cube are covered by nine stickers in six solid colours; there is one colour for each side of the cube. When the puzzle is solved, each face of the cube is the same colour. Every two years, the Rubik’s Cube world championship is held to ﬁnd the person who can solve the puzzle fastest. The world record of 9.86 seconds was set by Thibaut Jacquinot of France in May 2007. The current Australian champion is Jasmine Lee with a personal best of 20.36 seconds. Anssi Vanhala of Finland won the feet-only challenge in 2007, aligning the colours of the 3 × 3 cube in 49.33 seconds.

4-06 Euler’s rule Worksheet 4-05 Euler’s rule

Leonhard Euler (1707–83) was a famous Swiss mathematician who discovered an interesting rule about polyhedra. He developed a formula relating the number of faces, vertices and edges of a convex polyhedron. edge An edge is a line of the solid, where two faces meet. vertex A vertex is a corner of the solid, where edges meet. (plural: The prism in the diagram has six faces, eight vertices) face vertices and 12 edges.

Estimating answers A quick way of estimating an answer is to round each number in the calculation. 1 Examine these examples. a 631 + 280 + 51 + 43 + 96 ≈ 600 + 300 + 50 + 40 + 100 = (600 + 300 + 100) + (50 + 40) = 1000 + 90 = 1090 (Actual answer = 1101) b 55 + 132 − 34 + 17 − 78 ≈ 60 + 130 − 30 + 20 − 80 = (60 + 20 − 80) + (130 − 30) = 0 + 100 = 100 (Actual answer = 92) c 67 × 13 ≈ 70 × 12 = 840

d 78 × 7 ≈ 80 × 7 e 929 ÷ 5 ≈ 1000 ÷ 5 = 200

4-08 The Platonic solids A regular polygon is a ﬂat shape with equal sides. For example, a regular hexagon has six equal sides. A regular polyhedron or Platonic solid is a convex polyhedron with identical faces. Every face is the same regular polygon. For example, a cube is a regular polyhedron because every face is a square. Because a cube has six identical faces, it is also called a regular hexahedron. There are only ﬁve Platonic solids, as listed in the table and drawn on the next page. Platonic solid

The Platonic solids were discovered by the Greeks in the 5th century BC. However, ancient artefacts displaying pictures of these solids have been found in Europe, Egypt, Africa and South America. It was believed that these shapes had mystical properties. They are named after the Greek philosopher Plato (427–327 BC) who claimed that these solids were ‘cosmic bodies’ representing the elements. • The tetrahedron stood for Fire. • The hexahedron stood for Earth. • The octahedron stood for Air. • The icosahedron represented Water. • The dodecahedron represented the ether or the Universe.

The rectangular prisms shown below are drawn on isometric dot paper, with the dots arranged in a triangular pattern. Horizontal edges are drawn at a slant on this paper. A 2-D (ﬂat) diagram of a 3-D ﬁgure (solid) looks more natural when drawn on isometric paper.
