Re: Solid Geometry Formulas

Torus:
A torus is a 'tube' shape, examples being a doughnut, and an inner tire, let r be the radius of the tube, and R be the distance from the centre of the torus, to the center of the tube

Surface area of the torus:

Volume of the torus:

Re: Solid Geometry Formulas

Parallelepiped

The volume of a parallelepiped of cross-sectional area A and height h is

or, equivalently,

where a, b, and c are the side lengths and θ is the angle between the slanted side and the horizontal.

Slanted Cylinder

The volume of a slanted cylinder with radius r, height h and slant height l is given by

or, equivalently,

where θ is the angle between the slanted side and the horizontal.

The lateral surface area of the slanted cylinder is given by

Non-circular Cylinder

The volume of a non-circular cylinder of cross-sectional area A, height h and slant height l is given by

or, equivalently,

where θ is the angle between the slanted side and the horizontal.

The lateral surface area of the non-circular cylinder is given by

where p is the perimeter of the non-circular cylinder. Note that the equations for circular cylinders may be derived from the equations for non-circular cylinders, by having A = πr² and p = 2πr.

Pyramid

The volume of a pyramid of base area A and height h is given by

Spherical Cap

The volume of a spherical cap of radius r and height h is given by

The surface area of the spherical cap is given by

Ellipsoid

The volume of an ellipsoid of semiaxes a, b, and c is given by

Paraboloid of Revolution

The volume of a paraboloid of revolution with "radius" b and height a is given by

Note: Would it be useful if someone were to create labeled images of these shapes to aid in the visualization of them? I could make a few drawings.

Also, should formulas of solid analytic geometry go here as well?

Re: Solid Geometry Formulas

or...

A = s²/(4tan[180/n]) where s is length of side and n is number of sides (for those who don't want to use pi to calculate the area of a polygon) big_smile

Unfortunately, trigonometry tends to turn more people off than π.


Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away. May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.
