Geometry is the study of shapes and configuration of objects. It is one of those important branches of mathematics that have practical and real life usage.
Rectangular prisms is a three dimensional solid shape. It is a polyhedron with two congruent and parallel bases. This type of prism has six faces and all the faces of the prism are rectangles in shape.Rectangular prism is just like a cuboid.

Lets discuss about prisms. The prisms are very commonly used in mathematics. A prism is a solid shape that has two flat congruent bases. It has lateral surfaces that join two bases together. Also, the cross sections of prism parallel to the base at each point are congruent. Two prisms are demonstrated in the image attached below :
Volume of a Rectangular Prism is a measurement of the occupied units of a Rectangular Prism. The volume of a Rectangular Prism is represented by cubic units. It is also defined as the number of units used to fill a Rectangular Prism.
The volume of the rectangular prism is equal to the area of the base times its height.
Let us find the volume of the rectangular prism, by using the given figure.
Length of the rectangular prism = 12 cm
Height of the rectangular prism = 5 cm
Width of the rectangular prism = 6 cm
Volume formula for rectangular prism = Height x Width x Length
= 5 $\times$ 6 $\times$ 12
$\therefore$ The volume of the rectangular prism is 360 cm3.
Given below are some of the examples on Rectangular Prism.
Find the surface of the rectangular prism, by using the given figure.
Length of the rectangular prism = 8
Height of the rectangular prism = 4
Width of the rectangular prism = 6
Surface area = 2wl + 2lh + 2hw
= 2 $\times$ 6 $\times$ 8 + 2 $\times$ 8 $\times$ 4 + 2 $\times$ 4 $\times$ 6
= 96 + 64 + 48
Therefore, the surface area of a rectangular prism is 208 square units.
