Presentation Description

Table of all the important parameters of a truncated octahedron (having 6 congruent square & 8 congruent regular hexagonal faces each of equal edge length) such as normal distances & solid angles subtended by the faces, inner radius, outer radius, mean radius, surface area & volume calculated by using HCR's formula for regular polyhedrons. It can be used in analysis, designing & modelling of polyhedrons.

HCR’s Formula for Regular n-Polyhedrons Analysis of Truncated Octahedron: Let there be any truncated octahedron having 6 congruent square 8 congruent regular hexagonal faces each of edge length a then all the important parameters of the given truncated octahedron are calculated as tabulated below Congruent polygonal faces No. of faces Normal distance of each face from the centre of the given truncated octahedron Solid angle subtended by each face at the centre of the given truncated octahedron in Ste-radian sr Square 6 √ Regular hexagon 8 √ √ Inner inscribed radius √ Outer circumscribed radius √ Mean radius √ Surface area √ Volume √ When a solid truncated octahedron of the maximum volume is produced from a solid sphere having certain diameter then approximate of total volume of the parent sphere is removed as scraps in facing operations to generate 6 congruent square 8 congruent regular hexagonal faces each of equal edge length.
