A spherical cap is a three-dimensional geometric shape that is formed by cutting a sphere with a plane that is not parallel to the base of the sphere. It consists of a spherical surface and a circular base that is perpendicular to the axis of the sphere.

Spherical caps can be found in various objects such as some lampshades, lenses, and the top part of some containers. They can also be seen in architectural structures like domes, arches, and some roofs. Some natural examples of spherical caps include the top part of a mushroom and the rounded top of a hill.
