There are two major types of prisms. They are,

- Regular Prism
- Irregular Prism

There are many different types pf prisms under these two prisms. They are as follows,

**Regular prism:** Prism with regular base polygon is called regular prism.

**Irregular prism: ** Prism with irregular base polygon is called irregular prism.

** **

Given below are some of the examples on prisms.

**Example 1:**

Find the volume of the prism whose base area is 60 m^{2 }and the height is 30 m?

**Solution:**

Step 1: Given base area is 60 m^{2} and height is 30 m

Step 2: Volume of the prism is, Volume = (Base Area * Height) cubic units

Step 3: Volume = 60 * 30

= 1800

So, the solution is 1800 m^{3}

**Example 2:**

Solve for the lateral surface area of the prism whose perimeter is 40 m^{ }and the height is 18 m?

**Solution:**

Step 1: Given, perimeter of prism is 40 m^{} and height is 18 m

Step 2: Lateral surface area of prism, LSA = Perimeter of prism * Height

Step 3: LSA = 40 * 18 = 720

So, the solution is 720 m^{2}
