A hexagonal prism is a prism composed of two hexagonal bases and six rectangular sides.
Find the surface area and volume of a hexagonal prism with the given apothem length 2, side 3 and height 4.
Find the area of the base.
Area of the base(A) = 3as = 3 * 2 * 3 = 18.
Find the perimeter of the base.
Perimeter of the base(P) = 6s = 6 * 3 = 18.
Find the surface area of prism.
Surface Area of Prism = 6as + Ph = (6 * 2 * 3) + (18 * 4) = 36 + 72 = 108.
Find the volume of prism.
Volume of Prism = Ah = 18 * 4 = 72.
The above example will clearly illustrates how to calculate the Volume, Surface Area, Perimeter of a Hexagonal Prism manually.
This tutorial will help you dynamically to find the Math area problems.
