Textbook Problem For Figure (a) of Exercise 1, find the number of faces, vertices, and edges in the polyhedron. Then verify Euler’s equation for that polyhedron.

To determine

To find:

The number of faces, vertices and edges in the polyhedron and verify Euler’s equation.

Explanation

Approach:

A) Polyhedron

1) A polygon is a two dimensional shape form with more than two straight lines.

2) A polyhedron is a three-dimensional solid shape.

3) Each flat surface of a polyhedron is a polygon and is called a face.

4) The line segment where two faces of a polyhedron meet is called an edge.

5) The point where three or more edges of a polyhedron meet is called a vertex.

B) Euler’s Equation

A very important relationship between the number of vertices, faces and edges of solid shapes was discovered by a Swiss mathematician Leonard Euler.

It states V+FE=2.

Where, V=Number of vertices, F=number of faces, E=number of edges.

Calculation:

The polyhedron ABCD is a triangular pyramid, also called as a tetrahedron
