What is a cross section?
Asked by Ayush Pateria | 26th Jan, 2011, 12:00: AM
A cross section of a solid is a plane figure obtained by the intersection of that solid with a plane. The cross section of an object therefore represents an infinitesimal "slice" of a solid, and may be different depending on the orientation of the slicing plane. While the cross section of a sphere is always a disk, the cross section of a cube may be a square, hexagon, or other shape.
