In any geometric solid that is composed of flat surfaces, each flat surface is called a face. The line where two faces meet is called an edge.

For example, the cube above has six faces, each of which is a square. Where two squares meet, a line segment is formed, which is called an edge. In the case of a cube, it has 12 such edges.
