Surface Area of a Pentagonal Prism – Formulas and Examples

Surface Area of a Pentagonal Prism – Formulas and Examples

The surface area of a pentagonal prism is calculated by adding the areas of all the faces of the prism. In total, we have seven faces on a pentagonal prism: two pentagonal faces and five rectangular faces. Therefore, we can find an expression for the surface area by...
Volume of a Pentagonal Prism – Formulas and Examples

Volume of a Pentagonal Prism – Formulas and Examples

The volume of a pentagonal prism is equal to the space occupied by the prism in all three dimensions. This volume can be calculated by multiplying the area of the pentagonal base by the height of the prism. In turn, the area of a pentagon can be found using the...
Apothem of a Hexagonal Prism – Formulas and Examples

Apothem of a Hexagonal Prism – Formulas and Examples

The apothem of a hexagonal prism can be defined as the line segment that connects the center of the hexagonal base with one of its sides in a perpendicular way. We can calculate the length of the apothem using the volume or surface area of the prism. This is possible...
Elements of a Hexagonal Prism

Elements of a Hexagonal Prism

A hexagonal prism is a polyhedron that has two hexagonal faces that are parallel to each other. The hexagonal faces are called bases. These two faces are joined by six lateral rectangular faces. If the prism is regular, both bases are equal and the lateral faces are...
What are the characteristics of a hexagonal prism?

What are the characteristics of a hexagonal prism?

Hexagonal prisms are three-dimensional figures, which are formed by two parallel hexagonal bases. These bases are connected by six lateral rectangular faces. This means that in total, a hexagonal prism has 8 faces, two hexagonal and six rectangular. Since these...

Faces, Vertices and Edges in a Hexagonal Prism

A hexagonal prism is a prism that has hexagon-shaped bases that are parallel to each other. The hexagonal bases are joined by six rectangular side faces. Hexagonal prisms have a total of 8 faces, 12 vertices, and 18 edges. If the prism is regular, the sides of...
