9 Shape and Form Shape is a 2 dimensional area Form is a 3 dimensional area
10 SHAPE SHAPE is a two-dimensional area that has length and height. Geometric shapesOrganic shapes
12 FORMForm is a three-dimensional area that has height, width, and depth.heightdepthlength
13 FORMSFor example, a square, which is two-dimensional, is a shape, but a cube, which is three-dimensional, is a form. pyramids, spheres, cones, and cylinders are examples of various forms.SQUARECYLINDERCUBErectangle2-D SHAPE2-Dshape3-D FORM3-D FORM
