The triangle is the strongest geometric shape, as it holds its shape and has a base which is very strong. The triangle is common in all sorts of building supports and trusses.

If all three sides of a triangle are made of rigid material, the angles are fixed and cannot get larger or smaller without breaking at the joints, unlike a rectangle, for example, which can turn into a parallelogram and even collapse totally. If you take a rectangle and place one diagonal piece from corner to corner, you can make that strong and stable, too, but doing that makes two triangles.

Is heart shape a geometric shape?

yes , a heart is a geometric shape Yes. (We're not talking about the primary organ of the circulatory system here. It's a math question.)   Draw a heart on a piece of paper

What is the strongest geometric shape used in construction?

Triangles and octet-trusses are used alot in bridges become they hold their shape well when subject to a variety of stresses. However hexagons and lorimerlite frameworks are u

What geometric shape is the strongest?

It depends on the circumstances. If you want rigidity, triangles are the best, and the octet-truss is the strongest structure in this circumstance because of the rigidity of t

What does ''diagonal'' mean in geometric shapes?

An oblique line (line that slants) from one part of the shape to the other e.g from one corner of a square to the opposite corner is a diagonal line. I hope this solved your

What is the strongest shape and why?

It depends on the circumstances. A sphere is the strongest shape for resisting uniform compression from all angles, either when their is a high pressure on the outside or insi

What is the second strongest geometric shape?

It really depends on what kind of strength you are looking for, a triangle is the strongest shape when rigidity is what is needed (so when you want to have a strong cantilever

Can shapes be organic or geometric?

I disagree with the post from earlier: No, only geometric. Organic means natural, not artificially improved or created. if it brought you to this when u were asking about

What is Geometrical shapes?
