cylinder
A cylinder is the central working part of a reciprocating engine or pump, the space in which a piston travels
Got it
Pythagorean theorem
In mathematics, the Pythagorean theorem, also known as Pythagoras's theorem, is a fundamental relation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides of a right triangle
Got it
rhombus
In Euclidean geometry, a rhombus, plural rhombi or rhombuses, is a simple quadrilateral whose four sides all have the same length
Got it
square
In geometry, a square is a regular quadrilateral, which means that it has four equal sides and four equal angles
Got it
rectangle
In Euclidean plane geometry, a rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles
Got it
In Euclidean plane geometry, a quadrilateral is a polygon with four edges and four vertices or corners
Got it
parallelogram
In Euclidean geometry, a parallelogram is a simple quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides
Got it
circle
A circle is a simple closed shape in Euclidean geometry
Got it
right angle
In geometry and trigonometry, a right angle is an angle that bisects the angle formed by two adjacent parts of a straight line
Got it
line segment
In geometry, a line segment is a part of a line that is bounded by two distinct end points, and contains every point on the line between its endpoints
Got it
angle
In planar geometry, an angle is the figure formed by two rays, called the sides of the angle, sharing a common endpoint, called the vertex of the angle

sphere
A sphere is a perfectly round geometrical object in three-dimensional space that is the surface of a completely round ball,
surface area
The surface area of a solid object is a measure of the total area that the surface of the object occupies
prism
PRISM is a clandestine surveillance program under which the United States National Security Agency collects internet communications from at least nine major US internet companies
transversal
In geometry, a transversal is a line that passes through two lines in the same plane at two distinct points
triangle
A triangle is a polygon with three edges and three vertices
Similar figures
Two geometrical objects are called similar if they both have the same shape, or one has the same shape as the mirror image of the other
cube
In geometry, a cube is a three-dimensional solid object bounded by six square faces, facets or sides, with three meeting at each vertex
pyramid
A pyramid is a structure whose outer surfaces are triangular and converge to a single point at the top, making the shape roughly a pyramid in the geometric sense
line
The notion of line or straight line was introduced by ancient mathematicians to represent straight objects with negligible width and depth
points
In modern mathematics, a point refers usually to an element of some set called a space
octagon
In geometry, an octagon is an eight-sided polygon or 8-gon
