A platonic solid is a special kind of polyhedron. A polyhedron is a 3-D figure whose faces are polygons.In a platonic solid all faces are identical regular polygons. A polyhedron has faces, edges, and vertices. The numbers of each are related by Euler's formula, V+F=E+2
WHat is the difference between polyheron and platonic solid
A trapezoid is not a platonic solid. There are only five platonic solids. They are the tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron.
Equilateral triangles, squares, regular pentagons.
triangles, squares and pentagons.
No. All the faces of a Platonic solid are identical regular polygons.
The faces of Platonic solids are regular polygons...
triangles and pentagons
The polygons are the equilateral triangle, the square, and the regular pentagon. The faces of these platonic solids are made from the following polygons: tetrahedron - 4 triangles cube - 6 squares octahedron - 8 triangles dodecahedron - 12 pentagons icosahedron - 20 triangles
A triangle, square or pentagon.
Its a platonic solid :)
Platonic solids are convex regular polyhedra. The faces of a platonic sold are all congruent polygons and they are all regular.The number of sides that meet at a vertex is the same for all vertices. When the sides are triangles, the platonic sold is a tetrahedron. This will NOT look the same as a cube where the sides are squares. So how the Platonic solid looks depends on the shape of its sides and very one of the five of them has different shaped sides.
From Wikipedia:A Platonic solid is a convex polyhedron that is regular, in the sense of a regular polygon. Specifically, the faces of a Platonic solid are congruent regular polygons, with the same number of faces meeting at each vertex. Moreover, all its edges are congruent, as are its vertices and angles.
Quite simply, it doesn't fulfill the requirements for a "platonic solid", which include the requirement that all bounding areas must be regular polygons. A square is a regular polygon; a rectangle is not.
