### What are two-dimensional objects?

A two-dimensional object is an object that can be drawn on a flat sheet of paper. It's called "two-dimensional" because it has 2 dimensions . . . length and width, but no height.

### The relationship of an object's height to its width is called the?

dimensional proportion

### What is the shape of a aircraft called?

It is a 3 dimensional shaped object

### Are pyramids polygons cylinders or prisms polyhendrons?

A polygon is a plane (2-dimensional) object bounded by straight lines. A polyhedron (not polyhendron!) is a solid (3-dimensional) object bounded by polygonal faces. So, pyramids and some prisms are polyhedra. A cylinder is a type of prism but, because two of its faces are circular, those faces are not polygons. As a result a cylinder is not a polyhedron.

### What is a two dimensional transformation?

when a two dimensional object is transformed by either translation,rotation,scaling,shearing etc on a plane ,it is called two dimensional transformation..

### How does a two dimensional object different from a three dimensional object?

Two dimensional object is a plane figure where as three dimensional object is solid (space) figure.

### Is the amount of space inside of an object?

This is called the volume of the object, the enclosed three-dimensional space.

### How do you define the word rotation?

A rotation is a movement of an object in a circular motion. A two-dimensional object rotates around a center (or point) of rotation. A three-dimensional object rotates around a line called an axis.
