Similarly one may ask, is a cone a polyhedron?
The faces of the polygon are known as "polygons" becausethey contain straight sides. It is known that the polyhedronis bounded by the "straight lines" and due to the "curved surfaces"of a cone. The solid which contains a base like circle andcurved surface with single vertex is calledcone.
Beside above, what is a polyhedron? In geometry, a polyhedron is simply athree-dimensional solid which consists of a collection of polygons,usually joined at their edges. The word derives from the Greek poly(many) plus the Indo-European hedron (seat). The plural ofpolyhedron is "polyhedra" (or sometimes"polyhedrons").
Correspondingly, how do you know if something is a polyhedron?
Identifying Characteristic They don't have curved faces. The word 'faces' refersto the sides of the solid. So if all the sides of the solidare flat, then it is a polyhedron. But if the solidhas any curved sides at all, then it is not apolyhedron.
Why Cone is not a polyhedron?
Thus a cylinder is not a polyhedron for severalreasons: its lateral surface is not plane, its bases arenot polygons, finally it has no vertex! Nofaces, no edges, no vertices, it couldn't beworse!
