A sphere is the set of all points, in three-dimensional space, which are equidistant from a point. The radius has one endpoint on the sphere and the other endpoint at the center of that sphere. The diameter of a sphere must contain the center and touch two points of the sphere. The largest circular cross-section in a sphere is a great … Continue reading Sphere


A cone is a solid with a circular base and sides that taper up towards a vertex. A cone is generated from rotating a right triangle, around one leg. A cone has a slant height. Surface area Surface area is a two-dimensional measurement that is the total area of all surfaces that bound a solid. The basic unit of … Continue reading Cone
