### Regular Hexagonal Prism

A prism having regular hexagonal base faces is called a regular hexagonal prism. A prism is a polyhedron with two congruent bases, and having parallelograms as faces. A right prism has edges perpendicular to the base. A regular prism is a right prism with

a regular polygon as the base. A hexagonal prism is a prism with a hexagonal base.

### Oblique Hexagonal Prism

A prism whose lateral edges are not perpendicular to its base or bases are not aligned properly is called an

oblique prism.

The regular right hexagonal prism of edge length 'a' has surface area and volume are given as:

### Surface Area of a Right Hexagonal Prism

Surface area of right hexagonal prism based on the prism side.

Surface area of regular right hexagonal prism (A) = 3(2 + $sqrt{3}$)a

Where, a is the side of the prism.

### Volume of a Right Hexagonal Prism

Volume of a right hexagonal prism with two hexagonal bases and six
rectangular faces, based on the prism side.

Volume of regular right hexagonal prism (V) =

$\frac{3}{2}$$\sqrt{3}$a

Where, a is the side of the prism.
