# Sphere

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Solid Geometry

• Sphere (a three-dimensional figure) has all points equally spaces from a given point of a three dimensional solid.
• Lune of a sphere is the space occupied by a wedge from the center of the sphere to the surface of the sphere.
• Sector of a sphere is the space occupied by a portion of the sphere with the vertex at the center and conical boundary.
• Segment and zone of a sphere is the space occupied by a portion of the sphere cut by two parallel planes.
• Sperical cap is the space occupied by a portion of the sphere cut by a plane.
