# How is icosidodecahedron formed?

## How is icosidodecahedron formed?

How a polyhedron is formed. The dodecahedron is transformed into the icosidodecahedron by cutting 12 vertices. The original side of the dodecahedron retains its pentagonal shape, but loses its area.

### How many edges does a regular icosahedron have?

30 edges
The 20 faces of the icosahedron are equilateral triangles; they meet in 30 edges and 12 vertices.

#### How many sides does a Rhombicosidodecahedron have?

20

Rhombicosidodecahedron
Type Archimedean solid Uniform polyhedron
Elements F = 62, E = 120, V = 60 (χ = 2)
Faces by sides 20{3}+30{4}+12{5}

How many edges does a truncated icosahedron have?

90 edges
An icosahedron has 12 vertices, so there are 5*12 = 60 vertices in the truncated icosahedron. 2E = dV = 3 * 60, so the there are 90 edges.

How many vertices does a icosidodecahedron have?

30 vertices
The Icosidodecahedron has 32 faces, 30 vertices, and 60 edges. Cuts are made along those 30 vertices to make 30 new faces to add to the original 32 for a total of 62 faces.

## Why does a soccer ball has 12 pentagons and 20 hexagons?

At the same time, we change the shape of the 20 triangles that make up the faces of the icosahedron. In particular, the standard soccer ball is a truncated icosahedron. After truncation, the 20 triangular faces of the icosahedron become hexagons; the 12 vertices, as shown here, turn into pentagons.

### How many faces does the icosidodecahedron have?

It has 62 faces: 30 squares, 20 regular hexagons, and 12 regular decagons. It has the most edges and vertices of all Platonic and Archimedean solids, though the snub dodecahedron has more faces.

#### What are the Cartesian coordinates of the icosidodecahedron?

Convenient Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of an icosidodecahedron with unit edges are given by the even permutations of: 2 . The icosidodecahedron has four special orthogonal projections, centered on a vertex, an edge, a triangular face, and a pentagonal face.

Is the icosahedron the same as the dodecahedron?

The icosidodecahedron is a rectified dodecahedron and also a rectified icosahedron, existing as the full-edge truncation between these regular solids. The icosidodecahedron contains 12 pentagons of the dodecahedron and 20 triangles of the icosahedron :

Why is the truncated icosidodecahedron called a zonohedron?

Since each of its faces has point symmetry (equivalently, 180° rotational symmetry), the truncated icosidodecahedron is a zonohedron . The name truncated icosidodecahedron, given originally by Johannes Kepler, is misleading.
