Any face of a prism that is not a base is a lateral face (see the attached image). The prism in the photo has a hexagonal base (6 sides) and 6 lateral faces. The lateral faces meet each other at the lateral edges, as well as the compliance of the foundations. Each side of the face is a polygon with four sides. All the edges of the sides are the same size and in parallel. This makes the sides of parallelograms, which contains one of the 4-sided figure with opposite sides parallel.
