Cross-Sections of a Sphere

Cross-Sections of a Sphere

The cross-sections of a sphere are two-dimensional figures formed by the intersection of a plane with a sphere. Since the sphere has a completely round shape with a constant radius, any plane that intersects a sphere will form a circular cross-section no matter the...
All the Cross-Sections of a Rectangular Prism

All the Cross-Sections of a Rectangular Prism

The cross-sections of a rectangular prism are the two-dimensional figures that are obtained when we cut a prism with a plane. The figure formed depends on the orientation of the plane. We can obtain rectangular, triangular, pentagonal, and hexagonal cross-sections....
All the Cross-Sections of a Cone

All the Cross-Sections of a Cone

Cone cross-sections are obtained when we cut a cone with a plane. We can obtain different cross-sections depending on the orientation of the plane. It is possible to obtain circular, elliptical, parabolic, and hyperbolic cross-sections. Here, we will learn about each...
All the Cross-Sections of a Cube

All the Cross-Sections of a Cube

The cross-sections of a cube are two-dimensional figures obtained by the intersection of a plane with a cube. Depending on the orientation of the plane, we can obtain square, rectangular, triangular, and hexagonal cross-sections. Here, we will learn about the...
All the Cross-Sections of a Cylinder

All the Cross-Sections of a Cylinder

Cylinder cross-sections are obtained when we cut a cylinder with a plane. Depending on the orientation of the plane, a cylinder can form three different cross-sections. If the plane is parallel to the bases, we get a circular cross-section. If the plane is...
