In geometry, the elongated pentagonal rotunda is one of the Johnson solids (J21). As the name suggests, it can be constructed by elongating a pentagonal rotunda (J6) by attaching a decagonal prism to its base. It can also be seen as an elongated pentagonal orthobirotunda (J42) with one pentagonal rotunda removed.
The 92 Johnson solids were named and described by Norman Johnson in 1966.

Famous quotes containing the word elongated:
“Neighboring farmers and visitors at White Sulphur drove out occasionally to watch those funny Scotchmen with amused superiority; when one member imported clubs from Scotland, they were held for three weeks by customs officials who could not believe that any game could be played with such elongated blackjacks or implements of murder.”
—For the State of West Virginia, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
