There are many different right prisms.

eg  rectangular prism, cube, cylinder, triangular prism, etc etc etc.

 

For  surface are you just have to work out the area of all the sides seperately and then add them all together.

SA of rectangular right prism = 2(length * width + length * height + width * height)

 

 

SA of triangular right prism = (perimeter of base) * (height) + 2(area of base)
