Prisms are polyhedra that have two parallel, equally sized faces called bases and their lateral faces are parallelograms.
The height of a prism is the distance between the bases.
The lateral edges of a prism are equally sized parallel edges.

Types of Prisms
The bases of the regular prisms are regular polygons.
The bases of the irregular prisms are irregular polygons.
The lateral faces of the oblique prisms are rhomboids or rhombi.
The bases of parallelepiped prisms are parallelograms.
The faces of cuboids are rectangular faces.
