What is the difference between a polygon and a solid shape?
The main difference between a polygon and a solid shape is that polygons are two dimensional. In contrast, solid shapes are three dimensional objects.
All the faces of a regular polyhedron are the same regular polygon. There are only 5 such shapes: A tetrahedron (triangular pyramid) A hexahedron (cube) Octahedron (two square based pyramids stuck together on the square faces) Dedecahedron (12 pentagonal faces) Icosahedron (20 triangualr faces). A sphere, although not a polyhedron, is also a regular solid shape. Any other solid shape is not a regular shaped solid.
A gas doesn't have a definite shape or volume iits molecules are very loose A liquid doesn't have a definite shape, but it does have a definite volume. A solid has both a definite shape and volume. molecules in solid are closely bound together. molecules in liquid are closely bound but not so closely as compared to solid molecules in gas are spread far away from each other. solids cannot be easily compressed. liquids and…
