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. Right triangular prism

  5. Tangent spheres
    tangent_spheres A sphere with a radius of 1 m is placed in the corner of the room. What is the largest sphere size that fits into the corner behind it? Additional info: Two spheres are placed in a corner of a room. The spheres are each tangent to the walls and floor and
  6. Square prism
    prism_2 A square prism has a base with a length of 23 centimeters, what is the area in square centimeters of the base of the prism?
  7. Paper box
    prism3s_4 Calculate how much we'll pay for a three-side shaped prism box with a triangular base, and if it measures 12cm and 1.6dm, the hypotenuse measures 200mm. The box is 34cm high. We pay 0,13 € per square meter of paper.
  8. Iron density
    pipe1_2 Calculate the weight of a 2 m long rail pipe with an internal diameter of 10 cm and a wall thickness of 3 mm. The iron density is p = 7.8 g/cm3.
  9. Angle of two lines
    ihlan There is a regular quadrangular pyramid ABCDV; | AB | = 4 cm; height v = 6 cm. Determine the angles of lines AD and BV.
  10. Ratio of volumes
    cylinder If the heights of two cylindrical drums are in the ratio 7:8 and their base radii are in the ratio 4:3. What is the ratio of their volumes?
  11. Pile of sand
    pile_sand A large pile of sand has been dumped into a conical pile in a warehouse. The slant height of the pile is 20 feet. The diameter of the base of the sand pile is 31 feet. Find the volume of the pile of sand.
  12. Earth's circumference
    parallels Calculate the Earth's circumference of the parallel 48 degrees and 10 minutes.
  13. Allan
    fish_1 Allan keeps tropical fish. His aquarium is 4 feet long, 1 foot wide, and 2 feet tall. Each fish needs at least 0.5ft³ of water. What is the maximum number of fish that he can keep in the aquarium? Please show your solution. Please
  14. Lateral surface area
    kuzel2 The ratio of the area of the base of the rotary cone to its lateral surface area is 3: 5. Calculate the surface and volume of the cone, if its height v = 4 cm.
  15. Closed drum
    drum Find the total surface area of a closed cylindrical drum if it's diameter is 50 cm and height is 45 cm . (π= 3.14)
  16. Ribbon on the cube
    gift A cubical gift box is tied with a piece of ribbon. If the total length of the free ends and the bow is 18 inches, what is the length of the ribbon used? (Each side of the cube is 6 inches).
  17. Water depth
    bazen How many square meters of the inside of the pool wet the water if the pool is 25 meters long and 10 meters wide and the water depth is 1.2 meters everywhere.
  18. Seat
    cubes3 How much m² of fabric do we need to sew a 50cm-shaped cube-shaped seat if 10% of the material we add to the folds?
  19. Base of prism
    hranol3b The base of the perpendicular prism is a rectangular triangle whose legs length are at a 3: 4 ratio. The height of the prism is 2cm smaller than the larger base leg. Determine the volume of the prism if its surface is 468 cm2.
  20. Aquarium
    akvarko The box-shaped aquarium is 40 cm high; the bottom has dimensions of 70 cm and 50 cm. Simon wanted to create an exciting environment for the fish, so he fixed three pillars to the bottom. They all have the shape of a cuboid with a square base. The base edge
