A prism is a polyedron, having two of its faces, called bases, equal polygons, whose planes and homologous sides are parallel. The lateral faces of prism are parallelograms and constitute the convex surface of the prism. Altitude of the prism is the perpendicular distance between its bases. Prisms are of different types like triangular, quadrangular, pentangular and so on. Prisms are classified on the bases of their bases.
