The formula for finding the volume for a triangular pyramid is half base x height x length. A triangular pyramid has four faces.

The volume of a rectangular prism can be found by the formula: volume=length*width*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.

For finding the volume of a cube, or a rectangular prism, you multiply all of the dimensions (height*length*width=volume).

The rectangular prism has a rectangular cross-section; the triangular prism has a triangular cross-section. Any other difference would be related to this fact - for example, differences in the formulae for the surface area, for the volume, etc.

for both of them its... volume=length times width time height and its always cubed.

A prism in mathematics is a figure that has the same cross-sectional shape no matter where it is cut. That doesn't really explain it well but a pipe is a cylinder with a circular base so it is a prism. A Toblerone, the triangular chocolate, is a triangular prism (almost). A box, a crate, a rectangular sky scraper is a rectangular prism.They all have a volume = area of base x height.rectangular prismlength x width x height

The formula to find the volume of a object or container in cc (cubic centimeters) depends on its shape. Different formulae are used for spherical, triangular, rectangular, cylindrical, etc. shapes. There is no formula for finding the volume of irregular shapes.

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.

A triangle is a 2-dimensional object. It has no volume but the volume of an triangular prism is ( volume=Length*width*height ) as well ever since.

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.

If the volume of the smaller rectangular box is 27 in3, what is the volume of the larger rectangular box?

-- measure the length, width, and height of the object -- multiply the three numbers together -- the answer is the volume of the object

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.

There is no such thing as a 3-dimensional triangle. A triangle is a 2-dimensional figure. So, depending on what you mean exactly, the volume can vary. In the case of a pyramid - whether it has a triangular base, a rectangular base, or any other base - the volume is (1/3) Bh, that is, 1/3 times the area of the base times the perpendicular height.

Volume = Area of the base X height of prism. This formula works for all prisms, not just triangular prisms. Area of a triangle = height of triangle X 1/2 X base of triangle.

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