## Related Questions     A prism has the same cross section throughout its length no matter what form it may take i.e. a cubic prism, a cuboid prism, a triangular prism, a hexagonal prism, a cylindrical prism etc.  You measure its length, breath, height and mass. Then Density = Mass/(Length*Breadth*Mass) in the appropriate units.  The volume is 3cm * 2cm * 5cm = 30 cm3. The density will depend on the mass of the prism which will depend on the material that the prism is made from. To find the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the length of that prism by the width and height of that prism. Find the area of one end of the prism, then multiply it by the length of the prism.  no it's not a cone is a pyramid and has one base but a prism has two bases and is not a cone Actually, a cone is just a cone, like an ice cream cone. a prism is like a shape strechted out like a pipe. A cylindrical prism would be a pipe with closed ends.  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  a rectangular prism is like a tissue box. 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. Not as easy as the first answer wrongly made it look. Density is measure as mass/volume. As with any matter, the density of chalk would require: 1. a measurement of its mass 2. a measurement for its volume. Mass can be measures on a scale in kg. Chalk's shape also makes it calculable for volume (in metres). If it is cylindrical, measure the height and the radius, then solve for V = (pi)(r^2)h. Divide the mass by that volume and find its density in kg/m^3. The answer will depend on the shape of the prism.The answer will depend on the shape of the prism.The answer will depend on the shape of the prism.The answer will depend on the shape of the prism. the defnition of find the surface area of triangular prism and cylinder You find the area of each of the four triangular faces of the prism and add them together.  The answer depends on the quality of the material used for the 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.
