Metric dimension is a generalization of affine dimension to arbitrary metric spaces (provided a resolving set exists). Let F be a family of connected graphs Gn: F = (Gn)n≥1 depending on n as follows: the order {pipe}V(G){pipe}=φ(n) and (Formula presented.) If there exists a constant C > 0 such that dim(Gn) ≤C for every n ≥ 1 then we shall say that F has bounded metric dimension. If all graphs in F have the same metric dimension (which does not depend on n), F is called a family with constant metric dimension. In this paper, we study the properties of of some classes of convex polytopes having pendent edges with respect to their metric dimension.
