4)The four vertices of a regular tetrahedron are snipped off, leaving a triangular face in place of each corner and a hexagonal face in place of each original face of the tetrahedron. How many edges will the new polyhedron have?

 

5)One square from the net needs to be removed so the remaining squares are still connected and can be folded into a cube. What is the number on that square? (Note: Two squares touching only at a vertex are not considered to be connected.)

2)The face diagonal of a cube has length 1. Find the surface area of the cube.

 

The side  is     1/√2

 

So....the surface area  =  6*side^2   =  6 * (1/√2) ^2   =  6* (1/2)  =  3 units^2

8)The center of a regular octahedron is 1 foot away from every vertex. What is the volume of the octahedron in cubic feet?

 

The octahedron will form two congruent pyramids

 

The edge of  one of these  is   2/√2  = √2

So....the area of the base of one of the pyramids is (√2)^2  =  2 ft^2

And the height  = 1 ft

 

So.....the volume  of one of the pyramids  is

 

(1/3) (area of base)  ( height)  =

(1/3) (2) (1)  =  2/3  ft^3

 

 

And by symmetry we have    

 

4/3  ft^3

3)Let ABCDEFGH be a cube. Find angle ACH in degrees.

 

Without a loss of generalization, assume the cube has edges of length 1.....so....

 

Let  C  =  (0, 0 , 0)

Let A  =  ( -1, 1, 0)

Let H  =  ( -1, 0 , - 1)

 

l A l   =   √  [  (-1)^2  + 1^2  + 0^2]  =  √2

l H l   =  √ (-1)^2  + 0^2 + (-1)^2 ]  =  √2

 

And the dot product  of the vectors A and H  =    A (dot) H   =   (-1)(-1) + (1)(0) + (0)(-1)   =   1

 

So....  the angle of ACH  =  the angle between the vectors A and H  and is given by :

 

cos(ACH)  = A (dot) B                  1                    1

                    ________   =        _______  =      ____

                     l A l * l H l             √2 * √2               2

 

So

 

arccos  (1/2)    =  ACH  =    60°

1)Quadrilateral  is a square with side length 3, so its area is 3*3 = 9
