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.

  1. Lathe

  3. Air mass
    airbaloon What is the weight of the air in a classroom with dimensions 10 m × 10 m × 2.7 m ? The air density is 1.293 kg/m3.
  4. Cube
    1cube Calculate the surface cube with edge 11 dm.
  5. Prism X

  6. Hollow sphere
    Xmas_ball Calculate the weight of a hollow tungsten sphere (density 19.3 g/cm3), if the inner diameter is 14 cm and wall thickness is 3 mm.
  7. Cone
    truncated_cone_1 Circular cone with height h = 29 dm and base radius r = 3 dm slice plane parallel to the base. Calculate distance of the cone vertex from this plane, if solids have the same volume.
  8. Cube
    kocka_rubik The cube weighs 11 kg. How weight is cube of the same material, if its dimensions are 3-times smaller?
  9. Balls
    steel_ball Three metal balls with volumes V1=71 cm3 V2=78 cm3 and V3=64 cm3 melted into one ball. Determine it's surface area.
  10. Cube in ball
    sphere2 Cube is inscribed into sphere of radius 241 cm. How many percent is the volume of cube of the volume of sphere?
  11. Hole
    cube_w_hole In the center of the cube with edge 14 cm we will drill cylinder shape hole. Volume of the hole must be 27% of the cube. What drill diameter should be chosen?
  12. Air
    air_room_people Room is 35.6 m long, 19.6 dm wide and 591 cm high. How many people can simultaneously be in this room if for hygiene reasons is calculated 5000 dm3 of air per person?
  13. Copper sheet
    cuplech The copper plate has a length of 1 m, width 94 cm and weighs 9 kg. What is the plate thickness, if 1 m3 weighs 8715 kg?
  14. Cubes
    rubik_cube Cube, which consists of 27 small cubes with edge 4 dm has volume:
  15. Tetrapack
    tetrapack How high should be the milk box in the shape of a prism with base dimensions 8 cm and 8.8 cm if its volume is 1 liter?
  16. Water
    cylinder_1 Into a full cylindrical tank high 3.6 with base radius 2.3 m we insert cuboid with dimensions 0.5 m, 1.9 m, 0.7 m. How many liters of water will come out?
  17. 2x cone
    truncated_cone_2 Circular cone height 84 cm was cut plane parallel with base. Volume of these two small cones is the same. Calculate the height of the smaller cone.
  18. Hole
    vykop They fill shape hole with dimensions 2.9 m, 17 m, 15.2 m with 97 m3 of soil. How many percent it fill up?
  19. Aquarium
    akvarium Aquarium is rectangular box with square base containing 76 liters of water. Length of base edge is 42 cm. To what height the water level goes?
  20. Balls
    balls_1 Ping pong balls have a diameter of approximately 5.1 cm. They are sold in boxes of 10 pieces: each box has the shape of a cuboid with a square base. The balls touch the walls of the box. Calculate what portion of the internal volume of the box is filled.
