Three-Dimensional Viviani Theorem on a Tetrahedron
Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics, San Jose State University, 1 Washington Square, San Jose, CA 95192, U.S.A.
A theorem of Viviani states that the sum of the distances from an inside point to the sides of a triangle is constant if, and only if the triangle is equilateral. It has a more general version that deals with a point anywhere in the plane. We will give a theorem similar to this general Viviani Theorem on a tetrahedron.
Keywords: Three-dimensional Viviani Theorem, equifacial tetrahedron, isosceles tetrahedron.
