The Triangular Bipyramid
The triangular bipyramid is a polyhedron bounded by 6 isosceles triangles, 9 edges, and 5 vertices. It is the dual of the triangular prism. It belongs to the class of duals of uniform polyhedra, which also includes the Catalan solids.
The faces are transitive isosceles triangles with 2 short edges and 1 long edge. The edge length ratio is 2 : 3.
Note that the triangular bipyramid as the dual of the (uniform) triangular prism should not be confused with Johnson solid J12, which is also a triangular bipyramid, but with regular faces—equilateral triangles—rather than isosceles triangles. The dual of J12 is a nonuniform triangular prism, having rectangular faces with edge ratio √6 : 1 rather than squares.
