A pentachoron is a 4-dimensional simplex. It is also called the pyrochoron under the elemental naming scheme. Its Bowers acronym is "pen".

Structure and Sections

Structure

The pentachoron is the pyramid on the tetrahedron, with 4 tetrahedra on each vertex.

Hypervolumes

  • vertex count = 5
  • edge length = 10l
  • surface area = \frac { 5\sqrt { 3 }  }{ 2 } { l }^{ 2 }
  • surcell volume = \frac { \sqrt { 2 }  }{ 3 } { l }^{ 3 }
  • surteron bulk = \frac { \sqrt { 5 }  }{ 96 } { l }^{ 4 }
