Remember that a triangular prism by definition has a triangle for a base. The general way to find the volume for any shape is the formulaV=Bh (volume equals base times height). The specific formula used to find the volume of a triangular prism is V=1/2(or 0.5)bhh (volume equals one half or 0.5 times base times height times height again. Volume of a triangular prism = cross-section area times length One half base times height (of the triangular section) times length. for both of them its... volume=length times width time height and its always cubed. One half base times height of the triangle times length of the prism. When you say surface of a prism this means the total amount of space on the outside of the prism. You have specified it to be a triangular prism, but taking the surface area of all prisms is the same process for all prisms. When finding the surface area of a prism you always use this equation... S.A. = (2 x Area of Prism Base) + (Height x Perimeter of Prism Base) In a triangular prism the base would be a triangle. Therefore to find the area you have to do 0.5 x base of the triangle x height of the triangle. For the perimeter of the triangle just add the length of all the sides together. The height indicated in your S.A. = ... formula... is how tall the prism actually stands. So since this prism is a triangular prism take the general surface area equation and put the correct triangular measurements into the general equation and you have this... S.A. = [2 x 0.5 x (height) x (base)] + [Height x perimeter] Here is the formula in word form. The surface area of a triangular prism is equal to two multiplied by one half multiplied by the height of the traingular height multiplied by the triangular base compute this number and then add it to the product of the height of the prism times the perimeter of the triangular base. You do length times width times height hope that helps  If it is a triangular pyramid it would be (1/2bh)4 A triangular prism is (1/2bh)5, or (base x height divided by 2)times 4 You muliply the base times the height of one of the triangles in the trianagular prism (both triangles will be similar, proportional, and equal, and you divide that number by two or multiply that number by 1/2, then you multiply that number times the height or length of one triangle's end to the other triangle's end of the triangular prism to obtain your final volume. The formula is as follows. V=1/2(b*h)(height) The volume of a prism is the area of the base (or the cross section of the prism that is perpendicular to the height) times the height.V = Ab * h the width times the length then that times by the height  Volume of a triangular prism = (1/2.b.h)Hb = base of the triangleh = height of the triangleH = height of the actual prism. = multiplied byThe volume of a prism is volume equals base times height. You have to know the base and height to find the volume.  Volume of a Triangular PrismVolume= 0.5(area of the base)(distance between 2 faces)Answer:Volume of a triangular prism = (area of the base) (perpendicular distance between the 2 bases of the prism)Since it is a triangular prism, the base of the prism is triangle in shape.Let b be the base of the triangle and h be the height of the triangle.Area of the triangle = 1/2 b*h or b*h/2.Let the Perpendicular distance between the two bases of the prism be l units.Then the volume of the triangular prism = (1/2)*b*h*lVolume = 1/2*b*h*l cubic units.So basically the formula is base times height then divided by two. (Only for the triangle.)For example, if one triangle's height is 6 and height is 11, then it would be like this:6 x 11= 66, divided by two = 33. In general, the formula for the volume of a prism is (if the prism is standing on its end, so that all the vertical sides are rectangles), the area of the base times the height. Now, the area of the base depends upon the shape of the base. It could be triangular. It could be rectangular. It could be trapezoidal. It could be pentagonal, hexagonal, octagonal, etc. If you were more specific about what kind of prism it was (i.e., the shape of the base), I might be able to provide a more precise formula. But, with what you gave me to work with, the best I can do is the area of the base times the height. The formula of volume of a cuboid (planar rectangular solid, rectangular prism) is L x W x H. (multiply the length times width times height).The formula for the volume of a triangular prism is 1/2 (W x H) x L.The formula for the volume of a sphere is 4/3 (pi) r3.The formula for the volume of a cylinder (round prism) is (pi)r2 x L. times the length and height of the square and then times the length and height of the rectangle and then add them up   Formula for parallelogram prism is volume = cross sectional area times length. It can also be calculated by multiplying length, height and characteristic length.
