Note. If semicircles be described on the three sides of a rightangled triangle, as diameters, then will the triangle be equal to the two lunes on the legs, taken together.

DEFINITIONS.
Solids

are figures that have length, breadth, and thicknefs.

2. The boundaries of solids are superficies.

3. A solid angle is that which is made by the meeting of more than two plane angles in the same point, and which are not in the same plane.

4. Similar solids are such as have their angles similar, and which are contained by the fame number of similar planes.

5. A cube is a solid contained by six equal squares. Fig. 8;.

6. A parallelopipedon is a solid having fix rectangular fides, every opposite pair of which are equal and parallel each to each.

Fig. 86.

7. A prism is a solid whose sides are parallelograms, and is either triangular, square, pentagonal, &c. according to the figure of its end. Fig. 87.

8. A cylinder is a round folid, whose bafes are equal circles. Fig. 83.

9. A pyramid is a solid, whose base is a plane figure, and its sides triangles, whose vertices meet in a point, called the vertex of the pyramid, and is either triangular, square, pentagonal, hexagonal, &c. according to the figure of its base. Fig. 89.

10. A cone is a pyramid, having a circular base, and is described by the revolution of a right-angled triangle about one of its legs. It is either right-angled, acute-angled, or obtuseangled, according as the revolving leg is equal to, greater, or less than the other. Fis: 90.

11. The

11. The fixed leg is called the axis of the conè.

12. A sphere, or globe, is described by the revolution of de semicircle about its diameter; the centre and diameter of the sphere are the same as those of the revolving semicircle. Fig. 91.

13. A segment of any folid is a part cut off the top by a plane parallel to the base. The frustum of a solid is that part which remains after the fegment is cut off. Fig. 92.

14. The prismoid is a solid resembling the fruftum of a pyramid, having parallel bases, and these bases both rectangles, but disproportional. Fig. 93.

15. A zone is that part of a sphere between two parallel planes. Fig. 94.

PROBLEM III.

To find the superficies of a parallelopipedon, or prisin, and of the

cylinder.

RULE.

Multiply the perimeter of the end by the length ; to the product add twice the area of the end, and the sum will be the sun perficies.
