A hexagon is a 2-dimensional polygon with six edges. The Bowers acronym for a hexagon is hig. It is one of the regular polygons that can tile 2-D space forming the hexagonal tiling, unlike pentagons, which cannot tile the plane. Hexagons have the greatest numbers of edges and angles of any regular polygon that can tile the plane.

Structure and Sections

The regular hexagon has equal edge lengths and each angle as 120 degrees. It can be seen as a truncated triangle.

Hypervolumes

  • vertex count = 6
  • edge length = 6l
  • surface area = \frac{3\sqrt{3}}{2} {l}^{2}
