Prism formulas


Lateral edge: 1

Height: h

Lateral area: S_{L}

Area of base: S_{B}

Total surface area: S

Volume: V


1. S = S_{L} + 2S_{B}

2. Lateral Area of a Right Prism

S_{L} = (a_{1} +a_{2}+a_{3}+a_{4}+....+a_{n})1

3. Lateral Area of an Oblique Prism
S_{L} = pl,
Where p is the perimeter of the cross section.

4. V = S_{B} h

5. Cavalieri’s Principle :- Given two solids included between parallel planes. If every plane cross section parallel to the given planes has the same area in both solids, than the volumes of the solids are equal.
