A prism is a solid in which two congruent and parallel polygons from the top and the bottom faces. The lateral faces are parallelograms. There are many types of Prism, and they are named after the shape of their base. A prism having hexagonal base faces is called a hexagonal prism.

Hexagonal Prism Definition 

The hexagonal prism is a prism with 2 hexagonal bases and six rectangular sides. It is an octahedron, with 8 faces, 18 edges, and 12 vertices.

Hexagonal Prism

A hexagonal prism is a prism composed of two hexagonal bases and six rectangular sides. The volume of the hexagonal prism is the three times the product of the apothem height, side of the base and height of the hexagonal prism. If 'a' is the apothem height, 'b' side of the base and 'h' is the side of the prism then, volume, V = 3abh.

Volume of a Hexagonal Prism Formula

The formula for the volume of any right prism,=> V = Ah

Where, A = area of the base and h = perpendicular height.

Base area of the hexagonal prism = 3ab

=> Volume of the hexagonal prism = 3abh

where, a = apothem height, b = side of the base and h = height of the prism

Formula:

Volume of the Regular hexagonal prism = 3abh


Where, a = apothem height, b = side of the base and h = height of the prism.
