 Java Gallery: Hyperbolic Triangles   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)

In hyperbolic geometry, the sum of the angles of a triangle is always less than 180 degrees (PI radians).
Therefore, the area of a triangle in hyperbolic geometry is:

 NonEuclid: Area   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
In Euclidean Geometry, the area of a triangle is calculated by multiplying the length of any side times the corresponding height, and dividing the product by two (A=½bh).
Recall that in spite of the fact that objects appear to shrink and flatten, the length of all sides, and the measure of all the angles remains constant as an object moves.
It could be argued that the area of a polygon would have to be bounded as follows: lets say that you constructed a polygon a defect of 200°.

 Area of Triangles and Polygons (2D & 3D)
Computing the area of a planar polygon is a basic geometry calculation and can be found in many introductory texts.
This computation gives a signed area for a polygon; and, similar to the signed area of a triangle, is positive when the vertices are oriented counterclockwise around the polygon, and negative when oriented clockwise.
Thus, the 3D planar area can be recovered by a single extra multiplication, and in total this algorithm uses n+5 multiplications, 2n+1 additions, 1 square root (when n is not a unit normal), plus a small overhead choosing the coordinate to ignore.

A circle sector's area in relation to the area of the whole circle is much like that between an arc and the circumference.
The area of a segment equals the area of the sector containing it minus the area of the triangle within the sector.
Perimeter and area provide a great help in this endeavor; with an understanding of perimeter and area, the good mathematician can look at certain existing conditions and deduce that two figures with the same area must be congruent.

 THE SURFACE AREA TO VOLUME RATIO   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The surface area to volume ratio is a way of expressing the relationship between these parameters as an organism's size changes.
For cubes smaller than this, surface area is greater relative to volume than it is in larger cubes (where volume is greater relative to surface area).
Many organisms have developed structures that actually increase their surface area: the leaves on trees, the microvilli on the lining of the small intestine, root hairs and capillaries, and the convoluted walls of arteries, to name but a few.

The areas of the smaller triangles are ax/2, bx/2, and cx/2.
The radius of the circle of intersection on the sphere is radius = srqt(3^2 - h^2) so the area is pi * (3^2 - h^2) For the ring, once again we are looking at the area between two concentric circles.
So the area of the inner circle is pi * (R^2 - 3^2) the area of the doughnut is therefore pi(R^2 - h^2) - pi(R^2 - 3^2) = pi (R^2 - h^2 - R^2 + 3^2) = pi (3^2 - h^2) Therefore the areas are the same for every plane intersecting the solids.
