RS Aggarwal Class 6 Math Nineteenth Chapter Three-Dimensional Shapes Exercise 19 Solution

EXERCISE 19

SOLIDAn object that has a shape and size is called a solid.

CUBOID Solids such as a wooden box, a match box, a brick, a book, an almirah, etc., are all in the shape of a cuboid.

FACES A cuboid has six rectangular faces.

EDGES Two adjacent faces of a cuboid meet in a line segment, called an edge of the cuboid. A cuboid has 12 edges.

VERTICES Three edge of a cuboid meet at a point, called a vertex. A cuboid has 8 vertex.

CUBE A cuboid whose length and height are equal is called a cube.

CYLINDER Objects such as a circular pillar, a circular pipe, a test tube, a circular storage tank, a measuring jar, a gas cylinder, a circular powder tin, etc., are in the shape of a cylinder.

SPHEREAn object which is in the shape of a ball is said to have the shape of a sphere.

CONE Objects such as an ice-cream cone, a conical tent, a conical vessel, a clown’s cap, etc., are in the shape of a cone.

TRIANGULAR PRISMA solid whose lateral faces are rectangular and the bases are congruent triangles, is called a triangular prism.

PYRAMIDA solid whose base is a plane rectilinear figure and whose side faces are triangles having a common vertex, called the vertex of the pyramid.

SQUARE PYRAMIDA solid whose base is a square and whose side faces are triangles having a common vertex is called a square pyramid.

TRIANGULAR PYRAMIDA solid whose base is a triangle and whose side faces are triangles having a common vertex is called a triangle pyramid.
