# Parallelepiped

## Parallelepiped

Prism whose faces are parallelograms.

### Example

• A parallelepiped is a polyhedron with six faces that are parallel in pairs.
• A right parallelepiped is a parallelepiped whose lateral edges are perpendicular to the bases. A parallelepiped whose lateral edges are not perpendicular to its bases is an oblique parallelepiped.
• If all the faces of a parallelepiped are rectangles, then it is a right rectangular prism.

### Formula

The volume V of a parallelepiped is $$V=A\times h$$, where A is the area of one of the faces and h is the height relative to the base.
