A heptagonal prism is a three-dimensional solid shape that consists of two parallel heptagonal bases connected by seven rectangular faces. The lateral surface area of a heptagonal prism refers to the sum of the areas of all the rectangular faces that connect the two heptagonal bases.

## The Formula for Lateral Surface Area of a Heptagonal Prism

Lateral Surface Area = Perimeter of Base x Height

where,

• Perimeter of Base = 7 x side length of the heptagon
• Height = height of the prism

## How to Use the Calculator?

Follow the simple steps below to find the lateral surface area of a heptagonal prism:

1. Enter the side length of the heptagon in the input field labeled "Side Length".
2. Enter the height of the heptagonal prism in the input field labeled "Height".
3. Click on the "Calculate" button to get the lateral surface area of the heptagonal prism.

## Example

Suppose you have a heptagonal prism with a side length of 4 cm and a height of 8 cm. To find its lateral surface area, simply enter these values into the calculator and click on "Calculate". The result will be:

Lateral Surface Area = 7 x 4 cm x 8 cm = 224 cm²

Therefore, the lateral surface area of the heptagonal prism is 224 cm².

## Uses of Lateral Surface Area of a Heptagonal Prism

The lateral surface area of a heptagonal prism can be used in various applications such as engineering and architecture. It can help in calculating the amount of material needed to cover the entire surface of the prism, which can be useful in determining the cost of production.
