It´s geometry without metric (ruler, protractor, scales etc). Just with pure geometrical contents.

Ex.: questions about planes or lines intersecting points, lines intersecting planes etc are incidence synthetic geometrical questions.

Parts of the Elements of Euclid are synthetic. Hilbert's axioms of Euclidean Geometry are synthetic because you don't need to measure segments or angles, and congruence is a primitive relation.

Birkhoff´s axioms are not synthetic because distance, scale and real numbers belongs to the axioms. You have metric Geometry.

Euclidean geometry has become closely connected with computational geometry, computer graphics, convex geometry, and some area of combinatorics. Topology and geometry The field of topology, which saw massive developement in the 20th century is a technical sense of transformation geometry. Geometry is used on many other fields of science, like Algebraic geometry. Types, methodologies, and terminologies of geometry: Absolute geometry Affine geometry Algebraic geometry Analytic geometry Archimedes' use of infinitesimals Birational geometry Complex geometry Combinatorial geometry Computational geometry Conformal geometry Constructive solid geometry Contact geometry Convex geometry Descriptive geometry Differential geometry Digital geometry Discrete geometry Distance geometry Elliptic geometry Enumerative geometry Epipolar geometry Euclidean geometry Finite geometry Geometry of numbers Hyperbolic geometry Information geometry Integral geometry Inversive geometry Inversive ring geometry Klein geometry Lie sphere geometry Non-Euclidean geometry Numerical geometry Ordered geometry Parabolic geometry Plane geometry Projective geometry Quantum geometry Riemannian geometry Ruppeiner geometry Spherical geometry Symplectic geometry Synthetic geometry Systolic geometry Taxicab geometry Toric geometry Transformation geometry Tropical geometry

Synthetic is 100% synthetic. There are blends sold that are part synthetic & regular oil. Look for a quart that sates FULL or 100% Synthetic. If it says Synthetic Blend then it is not 100% Synthetic.Synthetic is 100% synthetic. There are blends sold that are part synthetic & regular oil. Look for a quart that sates FULL or 100% Synthetic.

One main characteristic of non-Euclidean geometry is hyperbolic geometry. The other is elliptic geometry. Non-Euclidean geometry is still closely related to Euclidean geometry.

Geometry is very important because you practically see it everyday. Everything is geometry. Humans are geometry. planets are geometry. If you don't really understand how much geometry is used and important, then you should try to see somebody for geometry answers.

Euclid is the father of geometry. That's why the geometry you learn is called Euclidean Geometry. THELS from greek

The difference between regular geometry and solid geometry is that regular geometry deals with angles, measuring angles, and theorem/postulates. Solid geometry deals with shapes and multiple sided figures.

The electron geometry ("Electronic Domain Geometry") for PF3 is tetrahedral. The molecular geometry, on the other hand, is Trigonal Pyramidal.
