# How do you calculate the volume of the triangular prism?

Its volume is: cross-section area times its length

### 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 calculate the mass of a triangular prism?

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…

### How do you find the volume of a prism?

The volume of any prism can be found by calculating the area of the base and multiplying it by the height of the prism. Recall that a prism is a solid shape composed of a base that is a polygon. By translating that base "up" and adding the "sides" to create the solid shape, you have constructed the prism. And now you can calculate its volume. Note that the base could be triangular, or could…
