**Exercise 10.3**

**(1) Can a polyhedron have for its faces**

**(i) 3 triangles? (ii) 4 triangles? (iii) a square and four triangles?**

**Ans-**

**(i)** No, for polyhedron four faces are necessary.

**(ii)** Yes, for polyhedron four faces are necessary.

**(iii)** Yes, for polyhedron four faces are necessary.

**(2)** **Is it possible to have a polyhedron with any given number of faces? ( Hint: Think of a pyramid)**

**Ans-**

Yes, but number of faces should be 4 or more than 4 faces.

**(3)** **Which are prisms among the following?**

**(i) (ii)**

** A nail Unsharpened pencil**

**(iii) ****(iv) **

** A table weight A box**

**Ans-**

**(i) **A nail is not a prism because its base (point) and top (circle)are not congruent and other faces are not parallelogram.

**(ii)** An unsharpened pencil is a prism because top (hexagon) and base (hexagon) are congruent and other lateral sides are parallelogram.

**(iii)** A table weight is not a prism because its base (four sides) and top (point) are not congruent and other faces are not parallelogram.

**(iv)** A box is a prism because top (rectangle) and base (rectangle) are congruent and other lateral sides are parallelogram.

**(4) (i)** **How are prisms and cylinders alike?**

**(ii) How are pyramids and cones alike?**

**Ans-**

**(i)** Prisms and cylinders are alike because top and base of both are congruent.

**(ii)** Pyramids and cones are alike because base of pyramid is poygon and baso cone is circle.

**(5) Is a square prism same as a cube? Explain.**

**Ans-**

A square prism can be a cube or cuboid.

If a square prism has lateral sides square in shape with same measurements then it will be cube.

If a square prism has lateral sides not square in shape then it will be cuboid.

**(6) Verify Euler’s formula for these soilds.**

**(i)** **(ii)**

**Ans-**

Euler’s Formula faces (F), vertices (V) and edges (E) of polyhedron.

Euler’s Formula

F + V – E = 2

Where,

Faces = F

Vertices = V

Edges = E

**(i)**

Faces = 7

Vertices = 10

Edges = 15

F + V – E = 2

7 + 10 – 15 =2

2 = 2

LHS = RHS

Hence, Euler’s theorem proved.

**(ii)**

Faces = 10

Vertices = 9

Edges = 16

F + V – E = 2

10 + 9 – 16 =2

3≠ 2

LHS ≠ RHS

Hence, Euler’s theorem is not proved.

**(7) Using Euler’s formula find the unknown.**

Faces |
? |
5 |
20 |

Vertices |
6 |
? |
12 |

Edges |
12 |
9 |
? |

**Ans-**

Faces | 8 |
5 | 20 |

Vertices | 6 | 6 |
12 |

Edges | 12 | 9 | 30 |

When,

Faces = x

Vertices = 6

Edges = 12

F + V – E = 2

x + 6 -12 =2

x -6 = 2

x = 8

when,

Faces = 5

Vertices = x

Edges = 9

F + V – E = 2

5 + x – 9 =2

x – 4 = 2

x = 6

when,

Faces = 20

Vertices = 12

Edges = x

F + V – E = 2

20 + 12 – x =2

32 – x = 2

x = 30

**(8)** **Can a polyhedron have 10 faces, 20 edges and 15 vertices?**

**Ans-**

Faces = 10

Vertices = 15

Edges = 20

Euler’s Theorem

F + V – E = 2

LHS

=10 + 15 – 20

= 25 – 20

= 5

≠

RHS

No, a polyhedron can not have 10 faces, 20 edges and 15 vertices.
