In Euclidean geometry, a prism is a three dimensional figure, or solid, having five or more faces, each of which is a polygon. The remaining faces of a prism, called lateral faces, meet in line segments called lateral edges. Every prism has as many lateral faces, and lateral edges, as its base has sides.

## What is lateral surface area of Prism?

The lateral surface area of a prism is the sum of the areas of its lateral faces. The total surface area of a prism is the sum of the areas of its lateral faces and its two bases. =ph where p represents the perimeter of the base and h represents the height of the prism.

parallelograms

## Are the lateral faces of a prism rectangles?

A prism is a three-dimensional solid figure with two parallel faces, called bases, that are congruent polygons, and lateral flat faces which are rectangles in a right prism, and are parallelograms in an oblique prism. Prisms are also called polyhedra since their faces are polygons. The lateral faces are parallelograms.

5 faces

## Can a triangular prism have a square face?

A right triangular prism is semiregular or, more generally, a uniform polyhedron if the base faces are equilateral triangles, and the other three faces are squares. It can be seen as a truncated trigonal hosohedron, represented by Schläfli symbol t{2,3}.

## What are the faces of a prism?

A prism is a 3-dimensional shape with two identical shapes facing each other. These identical shapes are called “bases”. The bases can be a triangle, square, rectangle or any other polygon. Other faces of a prism are parallelograms or rectangles.

three edges

## What is a wedge shape called?
