Waterman's Polyhedral Mensuration chart

compilation by Steve Waterman June 2010

All Polyhedron Volumes = the shortest edge3 times below values.

equal edged polyhedron containing RHOMBUS

Special thanks to Jim McNeil [ data is shown in bold ] and Roger Kaufman for creating all their related rhombus material.

and to Rob Webb the creator of Great Stella , which allowed extrapolations to deteremine the values below.

Edge values in blue correspond to a poly having the volume (as seen one column over to the right )
...should the Short Face Diagonal be assigned a value of 1, instead of to the shortest edge.

RHOMBIC DODECAHEDRON             SFD = short face diagonal      LFD =  long face diagonal
