Convex Surfaces

In Fig. 127 the shading is very light along the upper margin, and heavy at the lower margin. The first shaded figure, therefore, represents a concaved surface, and the second figure a convex surface.

The shading of the S-shaped surface (Fig. 128) is a compound of Figs. 126 and 127.
