- Volumes of solids such as prisms, pyramids, tetrahedrons, wedges, cylinders and truncated cones are calculated.
- Ancient stonecutters could thus cleave it perpendicular to the crystal axis to produce hexagonal prisms of any desired length.
- We will show that the area of this ring is equal to the area of the corresponding cross section of the dome, which implies that the dome and the punctured prism have equal volumes.
- You can readily extend the same approach to other polyhedra, such as prisms and antiprisms.
- He goes on to consider solid geometry giving results on prisms, cylinders, and spheres.
