How to use "Convex" in context?

The word "convex" is derived from Latin and means "shaped like a cone." Convex objects, such as mountains and lenses, are characteristically flattened on the inside. This makes them good at diffusing light and creating a shadowless area. Convex objects can be dangerous if they are not handled with care. For example, a car that has been hit by a convex object can become lodged in the object's surface.
