Hello! I need to find an explanation, why there isn't a sixth platonic body, I know that it has got something to do with angles but I don't see a connection. I see that it would be impossible to put together a sixcorner but I fail to prove why it's impossible. Platonic solids may also be known as Platonic bodies. Next question, I need to calculate my bodyvolume. Perhaps a formula that I can use? Or just an explanation that I can learn from? Thank you!

Google: [only 5 platonic solids] will find several sources including this: http://www.math.utah.edu/~pa/math/polyh ... hedra.html Volume? Google again! [volume platonic solid].
