Cylinder | 3 faces |

Rectangular prism | 6 faces |

## Which is flat shape?

A closed two-dimensional or flat figure is called a plane shape. … Different plane shapes have different attributes such as the number of sides or corners (or vertices). A side is a straight line that makes part of the shape and a corner or vertex is where two sides meet.

## What object is flat?

## What are flat shapes examples?

**Some examples are:**

- Circles. No sides. No angles. No vertices. Every point is the same fixed distance from the center of the circle.
- Squares. 4 straight sides. All sides are the same length. 4 vertices. 4 right angles (90 degree angles) …
- Rectangles. 4 straight sides. 4 right angles. 4 vertices.

## How many refractive surfaces does a prism have?

It is the most traditional prism. Colloquial use of prism generally refers to the triangular prism. This prism has a total of **five surfaces** out of which two are triangular and the rest three are rectangular. The two triangular faces are opposite to each other.

## What is the rectangular prism?

**a polyhedron with two congruent and parallel bases**. It is also called a cuboid. A rectangular prism has six faces and all the faces are in a rectangle shape and have twelve edges. Because of its cross-section along the length it is said to be a prism.

## What is the value of the rectangular prism?

**V= l × w × h**where”V” “l” “w” and “h” are the volume length width and height of the rectangular prism respectively.
