Three Dimensional Shapes

three-dimensional shapes (3D shapes) are also called the solids, which have three-dimensions namely length, width and height. 3D shapes can include both polyhedrons and curved solids.
Cuboid, Cube, Cylinder, Cone, Sphere and Pyramid etc.

One Dimensional Figures: A line segment is one-dimensional, since it has only length.

The figures which have only length and breadth are called two dimensional (2-D) figures. A 2-D figure does not possess height.
Examples: Square, rectangle, triangle etc.

Class 7 Maths Exercise 13.1 Important Questions

What 3D shape has 1 face?

A face is a flat or curved surface on a 3D shape. For examples a cube has six faces, a cylinder has three and a sphere has just one.

How are 3D shapes used in everyday life?

We live in a three-dimensional world. Every one of us has height, width, and length. Shapes exist in our 3D world, too: game dice, cuboids, donuts, pyramids, beach balls, traffic cones. All of those are 3D shapes.

Does a cone have 1 or 2 faces?

A Face or Surface of a solid figure, can be plane or curved. So, A Cone has TWO faces, one plane face (or surface). And the other one is curved face (or surface) … (1) Plane face is circular in shape.

What is the most basic shape?

The square, circle, and triangle are the most basic shapes on Earth, supporting structures both synthetic and natural.


The objects having definite shape and size are called solids. A solid occupies a fixed amount of space.
Solids occur in various shapes, such as a cuboid, a cube, a cylinder, a cone, a sphere, etc. All solid figures have three elements faces, edges and vertices.


A solid bounded by six rectangular faces is called a cuboid. A cuboid has three dimensions, namely length, breadth and height. A matchbox, a chalk box, a brick, a tile, a book, an almirah, etc., are all examples of a cuboid.

Properties of Cuboid

(i) A cuboid has 6 rectangular faces. The opposite faces of a cuboid are identical.
(ii) Two adjacent faces of a cuboid meet in a line segment called an edge of the cuboid. A cuboid has 12 edges.
(iii) Three edges of a cuboid meet at a point called a vertex. A cuboid has 8 vertices.
