Laptop power cord... plug?

So my laptop's power cord comes in two parts that detach from another. One is the "power brick" that plugs into my laptop, the other is a "power cord' that plugs into the wall.

My "power brick" works but the "power cord" is fucked.

What do you call this cord (it's got a regular 3-prong plug on one end and a triangular 3-tubes thing on the other end)?

And where can I get a replacement? It seems like a standard part, as opposed to a the "power brick" which is model-specific.

    Is it an IEC C5 cable?

    Usually they come together and they are jointly referred to as the power supply.
