# 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…de (hence the use of dome shaped space suit helmets or dome shaped submarine windows). A triangle is the most rigid shape however, so if you want to cantilever an object, a series of tessellating triangles would provide the strongest structure (hence the widespread use of octet-trusses - the strongest known structure for cantilever stresses). A hexagon is the strongest shape when packed together in a tessellation, but only for compressive forces (hence the ubiquitous hexagonal forms in nature such as the bees honeycombs). The three dimensional equivalent of hexagonal grid is a lorimerlite structure, which is the strongest truss for resisting compressive forces.

# 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…sed in different conditions, where they must resist only compression as opposed to a variety of stresses. Also the straight line is the best geometry for resisting tension, hence the use of steel cables.

# 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… structure or a general structure that can resist a variety of stresses). It's difficult to say what might be the second strongest shape in such circumstances, but maybe a triangle that is not equilateral, but this is an over simplification. An octet-truss is the strongest structure for cantilevering because of the strength of the triangle However if its 'hardness' you're looking for, or resistance to purely compression, a tessellation of hexagons is your strongest shape, and therefore perhapse an irregular hexagon is your second strongest. A lorimerlite framework is the strongest truss under compression because of the strength of hexagons.

# What is the geometrical shape of a can?

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

# What are the 3 strongest geometric figures?

The triangle.

# What is the strongest geometric prism?

The strongest geometric shape is probably the triangular prism.

# What is geometric in shape?

# 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 the top tube, the seat tube and the down tube.

# 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…riangles. However if its resistance to compression you want its a tessellation of hexagons, and a lorimerlite framework is the strongest truss in this circumstance. Also a sphere is the strongest stand alone shape in circumstances of uniform compression in all directions, hence the use of domed submarine windows and space sut helmets.

# 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

# 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…. Draw it the "usual way" with the "lobes" pointing up and the "pointy part" down. Now cut it in half and look at just the line that makes half of it. That curved line can be "translated" into a mathematical expression. The term cardioid is applied to that shape. And a link can be found below.
