Regular hexagonal prism

Regular hexagonal prism

A hexagonal prism is a polyhedron, the two faces of equal hexagons lying in parallel planes. The remaining faces (side faces) are parallelograms that have common sides with these triangles.

A regular hexagonal prism is a hexagonal prism whose bases have regular hexagons (all sides of which are equal, the angles between the sides of the base are 120 degrees), and the side faces are rectangles.

base of hexagonal prism

Prism bases are equal to regular hexagons.

lateral sides of a hexagonal prism

The side faces of the prism are rectangles.

edges of a hexagonal prism

The side edges of the prism are parallel and equal.

dimensions of the hexagonal prism

The dimensions of the prism can be expressed in terms of side length a and height h.

hexagonal prism surface area

The prism's total surface area is equal to the sum of ​​its lateral surface area and the doubled area of the base.

The formula of the surface area of ​​a hexagonal prism:

hexagonal prism surface area formula
hexagonal prism volume

The volume of a prism is equal to the product of its height and base area.

The formula of volume of a regular hexagonal prism:

formula for the volume of a hexagonal prism
radius of a cylinder of a hexagonal prism

The regular hexagonal prism can be inscribed into the cylinder.

The formula for the radius of the cylinder:

polyhedron dual to hexagonal prism
The dual polyhedron of a direct prism is a bipyramid.

Historically, the concept of "prism" arose from Latin and meant - something sawed.

The animation demonstrates how two parallel planes cutting off the excess from the two bases of the prism. From a single workpiece, you can get both the regular prism and an oblique prism.
