Solid geometry, stereometry

Solid geometry is the name for the geometry of three-dimensional Euclidean space.

Stereometry deals with the measurements of volumes of various solid figures (three-dimensional figures) including pyramids, prisms and other polyhedrons; cylinders; cones; truncated cones; and balls bounded by spheres.
