Q: A: ### Quick Answer

**A cone has one edge.** The edge appears at the intersection of of the circular plane surface with the curved surface originating from the cone's vertex.

This question could be confusing since it depends on how one defines "edge" and "plane." If it is considered that the cone has an infinite amount of intersecting planes, there are an infinite number of edges where each of these planes intersect with each other. If one considers the term "edge" to mean the boundary of a geometric plane figure, then a cone has one edge along the perimeter of its flat base.

## Does a cone have a vertex?

A:

Full Answer >**A cone is made up of one circular face and a vertex, which is also its pointed side.**A right cone is one in which the vertex is directly above (or below) the center of the base.Filed Under: - Q:
## What are the properties of a cone?

A:

Full Answer >**A cone is a geometrical figure with one curved surface and one circular surface at the bottom.**The top of the curved surface is called the apex of the cone. An edge that joins the curved surface with the circular surface is called the curved edge of the cone.Filed Under:
