PRISMS

## A PRISM is a polyhedron of which two faces are equal polygons

in parallel planes, and the other faces are parallelograms.

SOLIDS

Properties:

## 1. The bases are the equal polygons;

the lateral area is the sum of the
areas of the remaining faces.
2. The altitude is the perpendicular
distance between the planes of its
bases.
3. A right section (K) of a prism is a
section perpendicular to the lateral
edges.
4. The intersections of the lateral
faces are called the lateral edges (e).

Prisms

Properties:

## 5. A right prism is a prism whose

lateral edges are perpendicular to
its bases; its lateral faces are
rectangles..
6. The sections of a prism made
by parallel planes cutting all
lateral edges are equal polygons
