# Formula for volume of triangular prism?

To find the volume of a triangular prism, find the area of one of the triangles (base of the prism) first (base x height divided by 2). When you have the area of the triangle, then multiply the area of the triangle by the height of the prism, *not the height of the base.

### How do you find the volume of a rectangular prism relates to the volume of a tringular prism if the two have the same lengthwidthand height?

The volume of a rectangular prism is found by; Volume = Length x Width x Height The volume of a triangular prism is found by; Volume = 1/2 x Length x Width x Height Therefore, Length, Width and Height being identical, 1) the volume of a rectangular prism is twice that of a similar triangular prism OR 2) the colume of a triangular prism is half that of a similar rectangular prism.

### How do you find the volume?

The formula of volume of a cuboid (planar rectangular solid, rectangular prism) is L x W x H. (multiply the length times width times height). The formula for the volume of a triangular prism is 1/2 (W x H) x L. The formula for the volume of a sphere is 4/3 (pi) r3. The formula for the volume of a cylinder (round prism) is (pi)r2 x L.

### What is the formula for calulating the volume and the area of a triangular prism and a triangle?

Volume of a Triangular Prism Volume= 0.5(area of the base)(distance between 2 faces) Answer: Volume of a triangular prism = (area of the base) (perpendicular distance between the 2 bases of the prism) Since it is a triangular prism, the base of the prism is triangle in shape. Let b be the base of the triangle and h be the height of the triangle. Area of the triangle = 1/2 b*h or b*h/2. Let the…

### Formula for finding the volume of a prism?

A prism in mathematics is a figure that has the same cross-sectional shape no matter where it is cut. That doesn't really explain it well but a pipe is a cylinder with a circular base so it is a prism. A Toblerone, the triangular chocolate, is a triangular prism (almost). A box, a crate, a rectangular sky scraper is a rectangular prism. They all have a volume = area of base x height. rectangular prism…
