Surface Area and Volume of Hexagonal Prism

  • Last Updated : 17 Mar, 2021

Given a Base edge and Height of the Hexagonal prism, the task is to find the Surface Area and the Volume of hexagonal Prism. In mathematics, a hexagonal prism is a three-dimensional solid shape which have 8 faces, 18 edges, and 12 vertices. The two faces at either ends are hexagons, and the rest of the faces of the hexagonal prism are rectangular.

where a is the base length and h is the height of the hexagonal prism.
 

Surface Area = 6ah + 3\sqrt{3}a^{2}
Volume = \frac{3\sqrt{3}}{2}a^{2}h
 

Examples: 
 



Input : a = 4, h = 3
Output : Surface Area: 155.138443
         Volume: 124.707657

Input : a = 5, h = 10
Output : Surface Area: 429.904
         Volume: 649.519
