the defnition of find the surface area of triangular prism and cylinder

Surface area of the triangle x the length of the prism.

surface area of a rectangular prism is the formula: 2lw+2wh+2lh

To find the surface area of an equilateral triangular prism you take the area of the rectangular sides and the triangular bases and add them up and your done.

You will need to find the surface area of each face and add them together.

The Surface area of a triangle = 0.5*base*height The volume of a prism = area of its cross-section*length

Surface Area = 2 &times; Base Area + Base Perimeter &times; Length

Find the area of each face and add them all up.

It depends on the size of the triangular prism, but depending on the side of the prism you use the triangle area formula to find it or the rectangle area formula to find it.

Work out the surface area of its 6 faces individually and then add them together

Squared. When you find surface area, you are only finding the area of the shapes that make up the three-denominational shape.

It is not possible. For example, the prism could be tall and thin, or short and thick, and either way have the same surface area.

Find the area of each face separately and then add them together for the total surface area.

To find the area of a prism, you have to first find the area of the base and multiply it by 2 (because there are 2 bases). Then, find the perimeter of the base and multiply it by the height of the prism. Lastly, add the area of the bases and the perimeter x height value to get the area of the prism. ** if the prism is a cylinder, do the same thing, finding the area of the circles (bases) and multiplying the height x circumference.

surface area prism = 2 &times; area end + total area side = 2 &times; area end + perimeter end &times; length of prism The information given to you will allow you to work out the area of one pentagonal end, and the perimeter of the pentagonal end.

Assume that a = apothem length of the triangular prism, b = base length of the triangular prism, and h = height of the triangular prism. The formulas to find the surface area is SA = ab + 3bh.

you find a tape measure and find how wide and fat it is then you cut it into tinny little pieces and measure them and you will get the dimension of a prism

It is important to remember the formulas when learn Geometry. The surface area formula for a triangular prism is A=2A(subscript B)+(a+b+c)h.

To find the surface area of an prism you must do the following: EXAMPLE: S.A.( SURFACE AREA) and L.A.(LATERAL AREA) S.A.=L.A. +2B S.A.=113 +2 (28) S.A.= 113 + 56 S.A.=169 IN.2( THE 2 MEANS SQUARE ROOT)
