# DESCRIBING CROSS SECTIONS RIGHT RECTANGULAR PRISM

## About "Describing cross sections of a right rectangular prism"

Describing cross sections of a right rectangular prism :

An intersection is a point or set of points common to two or more geometric figures. A plane is a flat surface that extends forever in all directions.

A cross section is the intersection of a three-dimensional figure and a plane. Imagine a plane slicing through the pyramid shown, or through a cone or a prism.

## Describing cross sections of a right rectangular prism - Understanding

The figure given below shows the intersection of a cone and a plane. The cross section is a circle.

The figure given below shows the intersection of a triangular prism and a plane. The cross section is a triangle.

A three-dimensional figure can have several different cross sections depending on the position and the direction of the slice.

For example, if the intersection of the plane and cone were vertical, the cross section would form a triangle.
