Elongated pentagonal gyrobirotunda
|Elongated pentagonal gyrobirotunda|
J42 - J43 - J44
In geometry, the elongated pentagonal gyrobirotunda is one of the Johnson solids (J43). As the name suggests, it can be constructed by elongating a "pentagonal gyrobirotunda," or icosidodecahedron (one of the Archimedean solids), by inserting a decagonal prism between its congruent halves. Rotating one of the pentagonal rotundae (J6) through 36 degrees before inserting the prism yields an elongated pentagonal orthobirotunda (J42).
A Johnson solid is one of 92 strictly convex polyhedra that have regular faces but are not uniform (that is, they are not Platonic solids, Archimedean solids, prisms, or antiprisms). They were named by Norman Johnson, who first listed these polyhedra in 1966.
