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.

  12. Circular pool
    arc_open The base of the pool is a circle with a radius r = 10 m, excluding a circular segment that determines the chord length 10 meters. The pool depth is h = 2m. How many hectoliters of water can fit into the pool?
  13. Floating barrel
    floating_barrel Barrel (cylinder shape) floats on water, top of barrel is 8 dm above water and the width of surfaced barrel part is 23 dm. Barrel length is 24 dm. Calculate the volume of the barrel.
  14. Diagonal
    krychle Determine the dimensions of the cuboid, if diagonal long 53 dm has angle with one edge 42° and with other edge 64°.
  15. Tower
    HexagonalPyramid_4 The top of the tower is a regular hexagonal pyramid with base edge 8 meters long and a height 5 meters. How many m2 of the sheet is required to cover the top of the tower if we count 8% of the sheet waste?
  16. Pyramid roof
    pyramid_roof 2/4 of area of ​​the roof shaped regular tetrahedral pyramid with base edge 10 m and height of 4 m is already covered with roofing. How many square meters still needs to be covered?
  17. Rotation of the Earth
