Regular quadrangular prism

Regular quadrangular prism

A quadrangular prism is a polyhedron, the two faces of which are equal squares lying in parallel planes, and the remaining faces (side faces) are parallelograms that have common sides with these.

A regular quadrangular prism is a quadrangular prism whose bases have squares and the side faces are rectangles.

quadrangular prism bases

Prism bases are equal regular squares.

sides of a quadrangular prism

The side faces of the prism are rectangles.

ribs of a quadrangular prism

The side edges of the prism are parallel and equal.

dimensions of a quadrangular prism

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

surface area of quadrangular prism

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

Formula of the surface area of ​​a quadrangular prism:

quadrilateral prism surface area formula
quadrangular prism volume

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

Formula of volume of a regular quadrangular prism:

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

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