A parallelopiped has six faces that are parallelogram - like a cuboid that has been distorted by pushing opposite vertices in opposite directions (the three dimensional equivalent of distorting a rectangle into a parallelogram). A solid with two rectangular faces would be a special case of a parallelopiped.

How does one determine the surface area of a rectangular prism?

To determine the surface area of a rectangular prism, the two sides, adjacent sides, and ends of the prism must be added up. To do this, the sides are the product of the prism's length and height, the adjacent sides the width and height, and the ends the product of the length and width.

How is a triangular and a rectangular pyramid different?

The difference in a triangular and rectangular pyramid only has to do with the base of the pyramid, which in turn decide how many sides the pyramid will have. A triangular pyramid has a base shaped like a triangle, which ends up having a total of 4 sides (including the base itself). A rectangular pyramid has a rectangular base, which ends up having a total of 5 sides (including the base itself).

What is a shape with 5 faces?

A shape with 5 sides is a pentagon.However, the term face is only applied to three-dimensional forms,and a shape (solid) with 5 faces is a pentahedron.There are no regular pentahedrons. The two forms are the square pyramid and the triangular prism. The former has 4 triangular sides and a square or rectangular base; the latter has 3 rectangular (or square) faces and two triangular ends.

Six rectangles. Three pairs of congruent rectangles. Imagine a standard box unfolded. The two ends are the same, the sides are the same and the top and bottom are the same.

What is an equilateral prism?

Equilateral means that all the sides are the same size. Therefore an equilateral prism is has all sides the same length. This also means that they have 3 equal 60 degree angles. The definition of prism is a solid figure whose bases or ends have the same size and shape and are parallel to one another, and each of whose sides is a parallelogram. Equilateral prisms are commonly used to refract light. This refraction demonstrates that white light is a combination of all colours of the spectrum.

How many faces does a hexagonal prism have?

Eight. A regular hexagonal prism will have two hexagonal 'ends' and six rectangular 'sides' - so it will have eight faces in total. ------------ An n-gonal prism has n+2 faces.

How many areas do you need to know to get the surface area of a rectangular prism?

Three: 1) The area of the cross-sectional rectangle end 2) The area of the rectangle joining the longer side of the cross-sectional rectangular ends 3) The area of the rectangle joining the shorter side of the cross-sectional rectangular ends Then the surface area of the rectangular prism is twice the sum of these three areas.

Why do you think that diagonals bisect each other for proving that a quadrilateral is a parallelogram?

The diagonals divide the quadrilateral into four sections. You can then use the bisection to prove that opposite triangles are congruent (SAS). That can then enable you to show that the alternate angles at the ends of the diagonal are equal and that shows one pair of sides is parallel. Repeat the process with the other pair of triangles to show that the second pair of sides is parallel. A quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel lines is a parallelogram.
