Using Faces, Edges, and Vertices to Identify a Solid

Figure Name | Number of Faces | Number of Edges |
---|---|---|

cone | 1 | 0 |

cylinder | 2 | 0 |

pyramid | at least 4 | at least 6 |

prism | at least 5 | at least 9 |

### How many faces do cylinder have?

2 faces

A cylinder has 2 edges. A cylinder has 2 faces and 1 curved surface.

#### What is a cylinder prism?

When we say is a cylinder a prism, we sometimes mean a cylindrical prism. It means a circular cylinder which is a prism-like figure and has a base shaped like a circle.

**Do cylinders have faces?**

Although a cylinder has two faces, the faces don’t meet, so there are no edges or vertices.

**How many faces does a cylinder have 2 or 3?**

A face is a flat or curved surface on a 3D shape. For example a cube has six faces, a cylinder has three and a sphere has just one.

## How is a cylinder different from a prism?

A prism is a solid figure that has two parallel congruent sides that are called bases that are connected by the lateral faces that are parallelograms. A cylinder is a tube and is composed of two parallel congruent circles and a rectangle which base is the circumference of the circle.

### What are the lateral faces of a prism?

The parallelograms are called the lateral faces of the prism. The segments that join the bases and form the sides of the lateral faces are called the lateral edges of the prism. The union of the two polygons and the parallelograms form the entire prism.

#### Is a base a face?

In geometry, a base is a side of a polygon or a face of a polyhedron, particularly one oriented perpendicular to the direction in which height is measured, or on what is considered to be the “bottom” of the figure.
