## The Prism

Prism is a polyhedron in which two faces are equal polygons in parallel planes, and all other faces are parallelograms. There are two types of prism; oblique prism and right prism. Oblique prism is when the axis is *not* perpendicular to the base and right prism if the axis is parallel to the base. In right prism, all lateral areas are rectangle.

## Derivation of Formula for Lateral Area of Frustum of a Right Circular Cone

The lateral area of frustum of a right circular cone is given by the formula

where

R = radius of the lower base

r = radius of the upper base

L = length of lateral side
