Truncated Rhombohedron Calculator (Dürer's solid)

The truncated rhombohedron (also truncated triangular trapezohedron) is a polyhedron from Albrecht Dürer's engraving Melencolia I. It is constructed by truncating the two sharp vertices of a rhombohedron with the edge length a and an angular ratio of 2/3 (72° and 108°), so that the remaining solid has a circumscribed sphere, that touches every vertice.
Enter one value and choose the number of decimal places. Then click Calculate.

8 faces, 18 edges, 12 vertices
Faces: 6 axially symmetric pentagons, 2 equilateral triangle with side length c
Edge length (b):
Edge length triangle (c):
Circumsphere radius (rc):
Surface area (A):
Area of a pentagon (A5):
Volume (V):
Surface-to-volume ratio (A/V):
Round to    decimal places.

b = a/2 * ( 3 - √5 )
c = a * √5 - 2√5
rc = a/4 * √14 - 2√5
A = a²/2 * ( 3√5 + 2√5 + 5√3 - 2√15 )
A5 = a²/4 * √5 + 2√5
V = 5/3a³ * √√5 - 2

Length and radius have the same unit (e.g. meter), surface areas have this unit squared (e.g. square meter), the volume has this unit to the power of three (e.g. cubic meter). A/V has this unit -1.
