## Related Questions That depends on the type of prism. For finding the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the length by the width then by the height. The volume of a rectangular prism can be found by the formula: volume=length*width*height  A prism is a solid geometric object. If you know its shape and dimensions you can calculate its volume. For finding the volume of a cube, or a rectangular prism, you multiply all of the dimensions (height*length*width=volume).     A triangular prism can be thought of as a stack of triangles. Then the volume is equal to the area of the triangular base multiplied by the height of the prism, or 1/2 length * width * height.  Area=Bh when B=area of the base, and h=height of the prism/cylinder  A triangle is a 2-dimensional object. It has no volume but the volume of an triangular prism is ( volume=Length*width*height ) as well ever since.  Volume = 1/2*(a+b)*h*l where a and b are the lengths of the parallel sides of the trapezium, h is the height of the trapezium, and l is the length of the prism.  Volume of a Rectangular Prism The volume of a rectangular prism can be found by the formula: volume=length*width*height  To find the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the length of that prism by the width and height of that prism. A rectangular prism has three dimension: its length, width and height. A flat and long prism is one whose height is small and length is large. the volume of a prism is very easy it is v=bxh   by finding the area of the base (ex if a square its side times side) and then multiplying that product by the height :D
