## How is the volume of icosahedron derived?

## What are the properties of icosahedron?

An icosahedron is a polyhedron (a 3-D shape with flat surfaces) that **has 20 faces, or flat surfaces**. It has 12 vertices (corners) and 30 edges, and the 20 faces of the icosahedron are equilateral triangles.

## What are the angles of a icosahedron?

The icosahedron is unique among the Platonic solids in possessing a dihedral angle not less than 120°. Its dihedral angle is **approximately 138.19°**.

## What is a icosahedron in math?

The regular icosahedron (often simply called "the" icosahedron) is **the regular polyhedron and Platonic solid having 12 polyhedron vertices, 30 polyhedron edges, and 20 equivalent equilateral triangle faces**, .

## What is the volume of the tetrahedron?

A tetrahedron has four faces, six edges and four vertices. Its three edges meet at each vertex. The four vertices that we have been given in the question are A(1,1,0) B(-4,3,6) C(-1,0,3) and D(2,4,-5). Hence, the volume of the given tetrahedron is **6 cubic units**.

### How many Tetrahedrons are in a icosahedron?

One of such solids is a polyhedron in the shape of a tetrahedron! In our case, three inner faces of the polyhedron should be slightly lower than those of the regular tetrahedron, as you can see in the figure. A regular triangle remains based on the polyhedron. Combining these **20** “tetrahedra”, we get an icosahedron.

### What are the angles in a dodecahedron?

In a dodecahedron, all of the angles, a, b, g, are equal and are **108 degrees**. This is due to the fact that each of the faces is a regular pentagon and in a regular pentagon each angle is , where n is 5. and so q = 116.57 degrees.
