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.

# What is Geometrical shapes?

Answer . geometrical shapes are shapes resembling or employing the simple rectilinear or curvilinear lines or figures used in geometry.

# Why is a triangle the strongest geometric shape?

The Circle is the strongest geometric shape, not the Triangle.

# 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 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 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

# What is the geometrical shape of a can?

If you mean a round can, the shape is cylindrical.

The triangle.

# What is the strongest geometric prism?

The strongest geometric shape is probably the triangular prism.

mathematically

# What is the strongest geometric shap?

We generally consider the triangle as the geometric shape with the greatest strength. A classic example is a bicycle frame. The "basic" triangle in the frame is composed of

# 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 geometric shape represents a flagpole?

That would be 2 shapes counting the top ball... The actual pole would be a Cylinder The ball on top would be a Sphere

it is an oval

# What geometric shapes do engineers use to create the strongest types of bridges?

Acually the triangle is the best way to go if you want to make a bridge. Not a circle. :)

# 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.

triangle

A sphere.
