The answer will depend on what is known about the rectangular prism. If you have no measurements then the only way to obtain the height is to measure it - either directly or indirectly. If you know three out of its length, breadth, volume and total surface area it is possible to use the formulae connecting them to calculate the height. Instead of the volume, you could have the mass and knowledge of the substance that a solid prism is made out of. In each case, a different formula is required.

To find the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the length of that prism by the width and height of that prism.


width*height*length=perimeter of a rectangular prism! :)


The answer depends on what information you have about the prism.



Volume of a rectangular prism is length x height x width.


Volume of a Rectangular Prism The volume of a rectangular prism can be found by the formula: volume=length*width*height


Volume of a rectangular prism = base x height. If volume and height are known, solve for base area by dividing volume by height.


The volume of a rectangular prism is base*height*length in cubic units


There is not enough information to determine the height.


To find the volume on a rectangular prism, the equaton is: length*width*height


To find the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the base, width, and height. If the prism is irregularly shaped, multiply the base and the height.


The volume of a rectangular prism would double if you double the height.


That depends on the type of prism. For finding the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the length by the width then by the 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.



-- Measure the length, width, and height of the prism. -- Multiply the three numbers. The result is the volume of the prism.


You don't. You need the height and the area of the base to find the volume.



Find the height. I believe thats how you solve it.


the volume is (base)(height)(width) ... base x height x width



a rectangular prism is like a tissue box.


If they have the same height, then the rectangular prism will require more paint. (Having the same height the prism will have more surface area than the pyramid).


A rectangular prism is also a rectangular cuboid. It is a rectangle with six sides because it has length, depth, and height. Click on the related link for an illustration of a rectangular prism.


The length and volume are not sufficient to determine the width and height.
