Areas of Polyhedra

The net of a prism whose base is a regular polygon.


You can rotate the figure by moving the red dot.

When you click on Init, another different prism will appear. Observe the net of several prisms.

To find the total surface area of a prism, we add up the surface areas of its faces and the lateral surface area.
