The 5 Platonic Solids – Properties, Diagrams and Examples

Platonic solids are three-dimensional figures, in which all their faces are congruent regular polygons. In total, there are five Platonic solids: tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron. These figures are associated with the five elements of...
