Geometry

  • Rhys Lewis
Chapter

Abstract

Geometry is the branch of mathematics that deals with points, lines, planes and solids and examines their properties, measurements and mutual relations in space. A study of geometry without regard to its practical use is often tedious and may appear to be without purpose. However engineering students should appreciate that a basic knowledge of the subject is essential and is in constant use in all branches of engineering, from the research and design departments of industry to the shop floor where the final product-whatever it may be-is manufactured.
