Cone vs. Cylinder

Published:

Conenoun

(geometry) A surface of revolution formed by rotating a segment of a line around another line that intersects the first line.

Cylindernoun

(geometry) A surface created by projecting a closed two-dimensional curve along an axis intersecting the plane of the curve.

‘When the two-dimensional curve is a circle, the cylinder is called a circular cylinder. When the axis is perpendicular to the plane of the curve, the cylinder is called a right cylinder. In non-mathematical usage, both right and circular are usually implied.’;

Conenoun

(geometry) A solid of revolution formed by rotating a triangle around one of its altitudes.

Cylindernoun

(geometry) A solid figure bounded by a cylinder and two parallel planes intersecting the cylinder.

Conenoun

(topology) A space formed by taking the direct product of a given space with a closed interval and identifying all of one end to a point.

Cylindernoun

Any object in the form of a circular cylinder.

(slang) The bowl piece on a bong.

Cylinderverb

(transitive) To calender; to press (paper, etc.) between rollers to make it glossy.

Conenoun

(slang) The process of smoking cannabis in a bong.

Cylindernoun

A solid body which may be generated by the rotation of a parallelogram round one its sides; or a body of rollerlike form, of which the longitudinal section is oblong, and the cross section is circular.

Conenoun

(slang) A cone-shaped cannabis joint.

Cylindernoun

Any hollow body of cylindrical form

Conenoun

(slang) A passenger on a cruise ship (so-called by employees after traffic cones, from the need to navigate around them)

Cylindernoun

The revolving square prism carrying the cards in a Jacquard loom.

Conenoun

(category theory) An object V together with an arrow going from V to each object of a diagram such that for any arrow A in the diagram, the pair of arrows from V which subtend A also commute with it. (Then V can be said to be the cone’s vertex and the diagram which the cone subtends can be said to be its base.)

Conenoun

A solid of the form described by the revolution of a right-angled triangle about one of the sides adjacent to the right angle; - called also a right cone. More generally, any solid having a vertical point and bounded by a surface which is described by a straight line always passing through that vertical point; a solid having a circle for its base and tapering to a point or vertex.

Cylinder

A cylinder (from Greek: κύλινδρος, romanized: kulindros, lit. 'roller', 'tumbler') has traditionally been a three-dimensional solid, one of the most basic of curvilinear geometric shapes. It is the idealized version of a solid physical tin can having lids on top and bottom.

Cone

A cone is a three-dimensional geometric shape that tapers smoothly from a flat base (frequently, though not necessarily, circular) to a point called the apex or vertex. A cone is formed by a set of line segments, half-lines, or lines connecting a common point, the apex, to all of the points on a base that is in a plane that does not contain the apex.
