450º Cone

Definition of a Straight Line: A straight line possesses reflection symmetry across itself and half-turn symmetry.
Postulates:
1. To draw a straight line from any point to any point.
Postulate 1 is false because it does not follow our definition of a straight line. We started off by drawing random points on the cone to determine which points we can or cannot connect to create a straight line based off our definition. We noticed that the point that effects our definition is either at the cone point, or a line going through the cone point. It has reflection symmetry across itself and sometimes half-turn symmetry. When looking at a line going through the cone point, you need to look at the whole line for half-turn symmetry. If the line goes through the cone point and has half turn symmetry, then the line is straight. If the line goes through the cone point but does not have half-turn symmetry, the line is not straight. Therefore, you cannot draw a straight line from any point to any point on a 450º cone. 2. To produce a finite straight line continuously in a straight line.
True because the 450º cone is infinite; therefore, any straight line will be continuous. 3. To describe a circle with any center and distance. “A circle is a plane figure contained by one line such that all the straight lines falling upon it from one point among those lying within the figure are equal to one another,” (Book I of Euclid’s Elements). Postulate 3 is false because the cone point cannot be a center point of a circle. With this case, we are not able to draw straight lines from any point on the circle to any other point. Lines intersecting the cone point are not straight, so the shape is not a circle. 4. That all right angles are equal to one another.

Postulate 4 is false because there are two different types of right angles on a 450º cone. These angles include 90º and 112.5º. When two lines

The first issue that I will focus on is the definition of a straight line on all of these surfaces. For a Euclidean plane the definition of a "straight line" is a line that can be traced by a point that travels at a constant direction. When I say constant direction I mean that any portion of this line can move along the rest of this line without leaving it. In other words, a "straight line" is a line with zero curvature or zero deviation. Zero curvature can be determined by using the following symmetries. These symmetries include: reflection-in-the-line symmetry, reflection-perpendicular-to-the-line symmetry, half-turn symmetry, rigid-motion-along-itself symmetry, central symmetry or point symmetry, and similarity or self-similarity "quasi symmetry." So, if a line on a Euclidean plane satisfies all of the above conditions we can say it is a straight line. I have included my homework assignment of my definition of a straight line for a Euclidean plane so that one can see why I have stated this to be my definition. My definition for a straight line on a sphere is very similar to that on a Euclidean Plane with a few minor adjustments. My definition of a straight line on a sphere is one that satisfies the following Symmetries. These symmetries include: reflection-through-itself symmetry, reflection-perpendicular-to-itself symmetry, half-turn symmetry,…
