A cylinder is a 3-Dimensional geometric shape that resembles a tube, only a cylinder has no open ends. For instance, if you were to take a paper towl roll and cap off both ends with 2 flat circles, you would end up with a cylinder.

You can make a tube (or pipe) by using a rectangle and bending it around on itself. With two circles, you can close of each end of the tube to make a cylinder.

That shape is called a triangular prism. A prism is made of rectangles arranged in a tube with any 2D shape at the ends. This shape determines what kind of prism it is, you can get pentagonal, hexagonal, and many other types of prism.
