 Chemistry: The Central Science, Chapter 9, Section 2 We see that the trigonal pyramidal molecular geometry of NH is a consequence of its tetrahedral electron-domain geometry. The most stable electron-domain geometry for five electron domains is the trigonal bipyramid (two trigonal pyramids sharing a base). As noted earlier, we call this shape trigonal pyramidal (a pyramid with an equilateral triangle as its base). wps.prenhall.com /wps/media/objects/166/170888/blb0902.html

 How Probe Tip Geometry Affects Contact Reliability A chisel contacting the rim of an open via is a special case (a chisel is essentially a pyramid with a triangular base). This attack angle principle is the same for the various blade point styles (a blade is essentially a pyramid with a diamond-shaped base), but the pressures are higher since there are two points of contact on the rim of the hole instead of three. The area of contact is easy to envision - it is spread over three regions which are the points of contact between the rim of the hole and the three ridges formed by the intersections of the chisel faces. www.qatech.com /tech/applications_notes/AN02.htm

 Icosahedron Using the pyramid method we have 20 equilateral triangular faces which serve as the base to a pyramid whose topmost point is the centroid of the icosa. The sides of the icosa are all the \/¯5 geometry of the pentagon: s = [2 / \/¯(Ø² + 1) ] * radius. It appears on the surface that the icosahedron is \/¯3 geometry, because it's faces are all equilateral triangles. www.kjmaclean.com /Geometry/Icosahedron.html   (332 words)

 GEOMETRY - LoveToKnow Article on GEOMETRY Pythagoras (q.v.), seeking the key of the universe in arithmetic and geometry, investigated logically the principles underlying the, known propositions; and this resulted in the formulation of definitions, axioms and postulates which, in addition to founding a science of geometry, permitted a crystallization, fractional, it is true, of the amorphous collection of material at hand. Pythagorean geometry was essentially a geometry of areas and solids; its goal was the regular solids the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedronwhich symbolized the five elements of Greek cosmology. The geometry of the circle,, previously studied in Egypt and much more seriously by Tbales, was somewhat neglected, although this curve was regarded as the most perfect of all plane figures and the sphere the most perfect of all solids. www.1911encyclopedia.org /G/GE/GEOMETRY.htm   (21277 words)

 Functional group geometry This forces the molecular geometry on the amine nitrogen to be a TRIGONAL PYRAMID. Molecular geometry is associated with the specific orientation of bonding atoms. As in the ammonia molecule there is one lone pair of electrons on the nitrogen in addition to the single bonds (invisible in the graphic), which give an electron pair geometry of tetrahedral. www.elmhurst.edu /~chm/vchembook/522funcgpC.html   (749 words)

 Solid geometry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Eudoxus established their mensuration, proving the pyramid and cone to have one-third the content of a prism and cylinder on the same base and of the same height, and was probably the discoverer of a proof that the volumes of spheres are as the cubes of their radii. In mathematics, solid geometry was the traditional name for the geometry of three-dimensional Euclidean space— for practical purposes the kind of space we live in. Analytic geometry and vector techniques have a major impact by allowing the systematic use of linear equations and matrix algebra; this becomes more important for higher dimensions. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Solid_geometry   (222 words)

 ninemsn Encarta - Pyramid (geometry) Pyramid (geometry), solid figure formed by connecting every point on or interior to a plane polygon to a single point not in the plane. A pyramid is thus a special case of a cone or of a polyhedron, a solid bounded by planes. The volume of a pyramid is thus one-third of the volume of a prism that has the same base and altitude. au.encarta.msn.com /encyclopedia_761552486/Pyramid_(geometry).html   (222 words)

 Human Form From Sacred Geometry The representation of this geometry with sticks or strings or rods as shown in Figure 37 (in which the centers of nearest neighbor spheres in three shells are joined) may represent the ideal space-filling matrix of linear oscillating elements. Sacred Geometry, the study of the unity of the cosmos, demonstrates relationships between Number and Space and the Human Form. Sacred Geometry studies such primal systems which reveal the unity of the cosmos by representing the relationships between numbers geometrically. www.people.vcu.edu /~chenry   (2748 words)

 Sacred Sites: Places of Peace and Power Measurements throughout the pyramid show that its constructors knew of the proportions of pi (3.14...), phi or the Golden Mean (1.618), and the "Pythagorean" triangles thousands of years before Pythagoras, the so-called father of geometry, lived. The pyramid is a scale model of the hemisphere, incorporating the geographical degrees of latitude and longitude. The Great Pyramid, attributed to Khufu (Cheops) is on the right of the photograph, the pyramid attributed to Khafra (Chephren) next to it, and that of Menkaura (Mycerinus) the smallest of the three. www.sacredsites.com /africa/egypt/great_pyramid.html   (3042 words)

 cone (geometry) In geometry, a pyramid with a circular base. The distance from the edge of the base of a cone to the vertex is called the slant height. A right circular cone is generated by rotating an isosceles triangle about its line of symmetry. www.tiscali.co.uk /reference/encyclopaedia/hutchinson/m0006655.html   (3042 words)

 The Watchman Expositor: Pyramidology Profile The pyramid served as a storage place for all the human history and prophecies up to the year 1998 (the time of the Second Coming of Christ, according to Cayce), recording in the languages of mathematics, geometry, and astronomy. Pyramid Power is a fringe teaching, predominantly of New Age devotees, which ascribes psychic or spiritual powers to the pyramid shape. The practice of seeking hidden knowledge or supernatural power from pyramids is widespread and diverse and lacks any organizational structure of its own. www.watchman.org /profile/pyrmdpro.htm   (1795 words)

 The Geometry of the Bent Pyramid Irregularities in the form of the Bent Pyramid, which Dorner attributes to settlements in the core-masonry, are found to reflect the complexities encountered by the builders in the fulfilment of an exceptionally ambitious project. Soon after the construction of the Bent Pyramid, the measure of 280 cubits was used for the height of the Great Pyramid, which was divided into parts of 82 and 198 or 2 x 99 cubits at the level of the 'King's Chamber'. It is generally assumed that the unique double-sloping profile of the Bent Pyramid was brought about during the construction when the builders, noticing a settlement in the masonry, decided to reduce the pyramid's eventual volume by lessening the external casing-angle. www.legon.demon.co.uk /bentpyr.htm   (1980 words)

 Space figures and basic solids A cube and a pyramid are both polyhedrons; a sphere, cylinder, and cone are not. The volume of a cube is the cube of the length of one of its sides.

 Triangle Sacred Geometry, from Pagan and Proud One of the most common uses we see of the triangle is a pyramid The 3 dimensional version of the triangle is the tetrahedron, a solid object contained within a sphere, but one which is pure of form because it contains 4 faces all of which express the trinity. All have their own uses, but they all stem from the root base of the triangle. paganandproud.bravepages.com /geometry5.html   (1980 words)

 Siriusly - Supplement [Sacred Geometry] This squaring of the circle works with a right triangle that represents the apothem(ZY) (a line drawn from the base of the center of one of the sides to top of the pyramid), down to the center of the base (ZE), and out to the point where the apothem touches the Earth (EY). All of the Sacred Geometry ratios we will be working with, the square roots of two (1.414), three (1.732) and five (2.238), phi (1.618) and pi (3.1416), are all irrational numbers. The claim is that the smaller circle (in square abcd) is to the larger circle (in square ABCD) as the Moon is to the Earth. www.dudeman.net /siriusly/0/sup/sacgeom.shtml   (2378 words)

 Trigonometry An interesting problem of spherical trigonometry is that of finding the area of a spherical cap of either a cone or pyramid, with its apex at the center of the sphere. Tacitly, we assume that the geometry is a plane geometry (curvature equal to zero). For each law, we give the spherical (a, b, c are the sides; A, B, C are the angles), its dual for the polar triangle (A. C are the angles; a, b, c are the sides), and the plane (a, b, c are the norms of the sides; A, B, C are the angles) version. www.rism.com /Trig/Trig02.htm   (8729 words)

 crop circles and sacred geometry The earliest known proprietors of sacred geometry were the Egyptians who embedded its secrets in the ground plans of their temples, their frescoes and, most blatantly, in the Gizeh pyramid which single-handedly contains most of the fundamental universal laws that many a tortured schoolchild now attributes to Pythagoras. Because sacred geometry reflected the universe, its pure forms and dynamic equilibriums shared a higher purpose: the attainment of spiritual wholeness through self-reflection, thereby giving structural insight into the workings of the inner self. As a mirror of the heavens sacred geometry was liberally applied across the Egyptian landscape for millennia as a way to bestow universal order on Earth, as reflected in their Hermetic maxim 'As Above, So Below'. www.lovely.clara.net /crop_circles_sacredgeo.html   (941 words)
