Common Prisms: Cube and Rectangular Parallelepiped
There are two very common prisms; the cube and rectangular parallelepiped. In non-mathematical term, both are called box.
Cube is one of the and is called . It is a polyhedron whose six faces are all squares.
- All edges of a cube are equal in length.
- All faces of the cube are congruent squares.
Rectangular Parallelepiped (Cuboid)
All faces of rectangular parallelepiped are rectangles and two opposite faces are equal rectangles.
- Parallel edges of rectangular parallelepiped are equal in length.
- Any two opposite faces of rectangular parallelepiped are equal and parallel rectangles.
