Dicone (EntityTopic, 11)
From Higher Dimensions Database
A dicone is a special case of a pyramid where the base is a cone. It is also a special case of a dipyramid where the base is a circle. It is bounded by two cones and an arrinder. Its faces are a circle and two curved-cone-surfaces.
Equations
- Variables:
r ⇒ radius of base of dicone
h ⇒ height of dicone
- The hypervolumes of a dicone are given by: (the red equations are thought to be inaccurate and need revising!)
total edge length = 2πr + h
total surface area = πr(r + 2√(r^{2} + h^{2}))
surcell volume = ^{πrh}∕_{3} · (2r + √(r^{2} + h^{2}))
bulk = ^{π}∕_{12} · r^{2}h^{2}
- The realmic cross-sections (n) of a dicone are:

Projection
The following are the two possible types of parallel projections for a dicone:
The nappe-first parallel projection of the dicone into 3-space is a tetrahedron.
