A sphere is the set of points which are all within the same distance from a given point in space.
The sum of the volume of the ´tetrahedrons´ gives an approximation of the volume of the sphere.
This animation presents the formulas to calculate the perimeter and area of shapes as well as the surface area and volume of solids.
These great scientists had a tremendous impact on the advancement in physics.
This 3D scene explains the correlation between the ratio of similarity and the ratio of volume of geometric solids.
The surface of a sphere consists of the set of points which are all at the same distance from a given point in space.
This animation demonstrates geometric rotation, a type of geometric transformation both in plane and space.
Rotating a geometric shape around a line within its geometric plane as an axis results in a solid of revolution.
