# Which 2D shape has 2 lines of symmetry?

## Which 2D shape has 2 lines of symmetry?

rectangle

A rectangle has two lines of symmetry. It has rotational symmetry of order two.

**What is symmetry in 2D shapes?**

Symmetry. A 2D shape is symmetrical if a line can be drawn through it and either side is a reflection of the other. The line is called a line of symmetry. This is sometimes called a ‘mirror line’ or ‘mirror symmetry’, because if you put a mirror on the line, the reflection would show the whole shape.

### What is the number of planes of symmetry?

Three planes

Three planes of symmetry are parallel to the surfaces and six planes of symmetry are diagonals. A sphere contains infinitely many planes of symmetry. If a plane contains the center point, O, of the sphere, it is a plane of symmetry for the sphere.

**How many lines of symmetry does 2D shape have?**

2D shapes like squares have four lines of symmetry and rectangles have two lines of symmetry. Other shapes with lines of symmetry include a circle, which has an infinite number of them.

## What are 2D lines?

In geometry, a two-dimensional shape can be defined as a flat plane figure or a shape that has two dimensions – length and width. Two-dimensional or 2-D shapes do not have any thickness and can be measured in only two faces.

**How many lines of symmetry does a 2D shape have?**

A 2D object or shape can be said to be symmetrical if a line can be drawn through the middle so that the two halves are mirror images of each other. The line drawn through the middle is called the line of symmetry. 2D shapes like squares have four lines of symmetry and rectangles have two lines of symmetry.

### Which has plane of symmetry?

A plane of symmetry is an imaginary plane that bisects a molecule into halves that are mirror images of each other. In 1, the vertical plane that bisects the methyl group, the carbon atom, and the hydrogen atom bisects the molecule into halves that are mirror images of each other. Therefore, it is a plane of symmetry.

**What is horizontal plane of symmetry?**

A symmetry plane perpendicular to the principal symmetry axis is called a horizontal symmetry plane σh. Symmetry planes that contain the principal symmetry axis are called vertical symmetry planes σv. A vertical symmetry plane that bisects the angle between two C2 axes is called a dihedral plane σd.

## What are plane figures?

Definition of plane figure : a geometrical configuration all of whose points lie in a plane.

**What are the 2D shapes called?**

The basic types of 2d shapes are a circle, triangle, square, rectangle, pentagon, quadrilateral, hexagon, octagon, etc. Apart from the circle, all the shapes are considered as polygons, which have sides. A polygon which has all the sides and angles as equal is called a regular polygon.
