## Related Questions If you triplied the height of a triangular prism, would that triple it volume You find the volume of a triangular prism by using this formula: Volume = 1/2 base of the triangle x height of the triangle x height of the prism. 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. Do you mean, what is the volume of a (right) triangular prism? Multiply the area of one end by the length of the prism. It depends on triangular what: pyramid, dipyramid, prism, ... 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. The volume of any prism is worked out in the same way whether it's a hexagonal prism, circular prism or a triangular prism. You just need to times the length of the prism against the area of the cross-section. The volume of a three-dimensional figure is the amount of space it encloses. The volume V of a triangular prism is the product of the area B of a base and the height h of the prism. (The bases are triangles. In a special case of a right triangular prism the bases are right triangles) Capacity generally implies volume in geometry. To calculate the volume of a triangular prism, find the area of one of its triangular bases and multiply it by the height of the shape. Find the area of a triangular section, 1/2bh, and then multiply by the length of the prism. The ends of a triangular prism are triangles. The volume of a triangular prism = 1/2 b x h x l, where 1/2 b x h is the area of the triangle, and l is the length of the prism. The formula used to determine the volume of a triangular prism is v = 1/2 (length)(width)(height). v= 1/2 (lwh) A triangular prism is a prism that has has triangular bases    A triangular prism.A triangular prism.A triangular prism.A triangular prism. To find the volume of a triangular prism u have to find the length, width, and height of the prism and then u multiply all of it together 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.    One half base times height (of the triangular section) times length. A person can find the volume of a prism by 1/2 x length x width x height. This formula works for a triangular prism. No, that will not give you the volume of a prism (since it's a triangular shape, not cuboid). For volume of a prism, you need to find the area of one of the end triangles, then multiply by the length of the prism.
