# Stauromesohedron (EntityTopic, 11)

### From Hi.gher. Space

(Redirected from Cuboctahedron)

The **stauromesohedron** is also known as the **cuboctahedron**. Of the six uniform mesohedra, it is the only one whose elemental name is longer (by one syllable) than its widely accepted name, however it was renamed for consistency. t has 6 squares and 8 triangles as its faces, two of each kind of face join at each vertex.

## Equations

- The hypervolumes of a cuboctahedron are:

total edge length=24lsurface area= (6+2√3) ·l^{2}volume =^{5√2}∕_{3}·l^{3}## Incidence matrix

Dual: rhombic dodecahedron
