The Pentagonal Bipyramid
The pentagonal bipyramid is the 13th Johnson solid (J13). It has 7 vertices, 15 edges, and 10 faces (10 equilateral triangles).
The pentagonal bipyramid can be constructed by attaching two pentagonal pyramids to each other at their bases.
The dual of J13 is a nonuniform pentagonal prism, with longer edges along its axis of symmetry than the edges in the pentagonal caps. The edge length ratio is √(25−11√5) : √2, or approximately 0.449 : 1. Thus, J13 is not to be confused with the dual of a uniform pentagonal prism, also a pentagonal bipyramid but with isosceles triangles rather than equilateral triangles as faces.
