# How do calculate the mass of a triangular prism?

678

the area of the triangular face (0.5 x base x height) times the length of the prism

No. That will only give the volume which is not the same as the mass. You will either need to assume that the prism is of uniform density. In that case, you multiply its volume by the density.

Alternatively, you follow Archimedes' principle to determine the density or even the weight of the prism. Then you need to convert to mass by dividing by the force of gravity.
