In geometry, an n-sided prism is a polyhedron made of an n-sided polygonal base, a translated copy, and n faces joining corresponding sides.
Thus these joining faces are parallelograms.
All cross-sections parallel to the base faces are the same.
A right prism is a prism in which the joining edges and faces are perpendicular to the base faces.
This applies if the joining faces are rectangular.
