In the diagram, a cube is given. Try to identify how many different cross-sections can be formed. What geometric shapes do these cross-sections have?

Can a triangle be formed? Can a pentagon be formed? What other polygons can be formed?
Consider the given circle. Rotate it about its diameter and try to identify the 3D object formed.

How to Use the Applet

Think of whether it is the only possible object that can be formed when rotating a circle about its diameter. Can other three-dimensional objects be formed?

These are the possible interactions with the presented applet.

- To rotate the circle, click on the button
Rotate

or click on the circle and move it around. - To see the formed three-dimensional figure from different perspectives, click on its interior region and drag it.
- To return to initial image, click on the button
Reset.

From the previous applet, it could be concluded that rotating a rectangle about one of its sides forms a right cylinder. What are the cross-sections of a right cylinder? There are several types depending on the position of an intersecting plane.

Case | Position of the Plane | Cross-Section |
---|---|---|

$1$ | Perpendicular to the base | Rectangle |

$2$ | Parallel to the base | Circle |

$3$ | Diagonal to the base | Ellipse |

The following applet illustrates each type of the mentioned cross-sections.

The given two-dimensional shape is a cross-section of a right cylinder. Identify whether the cross-section is parallel, perpendicular, or diagonal to the base of the cylinder.

Here a right triangle is given. Rotate it about its height and identify the type of a three-dimensional figure formed.

How to Use the Applet

Think about whether this is a one-time case or a general rule.

These are the possible interactions with the presented applet.

- To choose the axis of rotation of a triangle, click on either of its two legs (each of them can be treated as the height of the triangle).
- To rotate the triangle, click on the button
Rotate.

- To see the formed three-dimensional figure from different perspectives, click on its interior region and drag it.
- To return to the initial image, click on the button
Reset.

From the previous applet, it can be observed that when rotating a right triangle about its height, a right cone is formed. What are the cross-sections of a right cone? Here are some possible types depending on the position of an intersecting plane.

The Plane's Position | Cross-Section |
---|---|

Perpendicular to the base | Triangle |

Parallel to the base | Circle |

Diagonal to the base | Ellipse |

Please note that in the case of an ellipse cross-section, the intersecting plane can be positioned parallel to the base, which turns the ellipse into a circle.
