Page 1 VISUALISING SOLID SHAPES 153 DO THIS 10.1 Introduction In Class VII, you have learnt about plane shapes and solid shapes. Plane shapes have two measurements like length and breadth and therefore they are called two-dimensional shapes whereas a solid object has three measurements like length, breadth, height or depth. Hence, they are called three-dimensional shapes. Also, a solid object occupies some space. T wo-dimensional and three-dimensional figures can also be briefly named as 2-D and 3- D figures. Y ou may recall that triangle, rectangle, circle etc., are 2-D figures while cubes, cylinders, cones, spheres etc. are three-dimensional figures.

For example, a given hut can have the following views. A hut Front view Side view Top view similarly , a glass can have the following views. A glass Side view Top view Why is the top view of the glass a pair of concentric circles? Will the side view appear different if taken from some other direction? Think about this!
