# What is the formula for calculating the volume of a triangular prism?

012

###### Wiki User

The volume of a three-dimensional figure is the amount of space it encloses.

The volume V of a triangular prism is the product of the area B of a base and the height h of the prism. (The bases are triangles. In a special case of a right triangular prism the bases are right triangles)

The formula for calculating the volume of a hexagonal prism is to take the area of the hexagon, then multiply it by the height of the prism.

triangular prism- formula: Abh(area of the base * height)

It depends on triangular what: pyramid, dipyramid, prism, ...

Find the area of a triangular section, 1/2bh, and then multiply by the length of the prism.

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.

You find the volume of a triangular prism by using this formula: Volume = 1/2 base of the triangle x height of the triangle x height of the prism.

The formula used to determine the volume of a triangular prism is v = 1/2 (length)(width)(height). v= 1/2 (lwh)

The exact answer depends on what information is available. It is equivalent to area of triangular base*length.

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.

Volume of a triangular prism = cross-section area times length

To find the volume of a triangular prism, find the area of one of the triangles (base of the prism) first (base x height divided by 2). When you have the area of the triangle, then multiply the area of the triangle by the height of the prism, *not the height of the base.

The Formula is Base*Height, or 1/2 Height (altitude of the triangle) * Base (of the Triangle) * height (Height of the prism)

Triangular prism = 2 triangles + 3 rectangles.

The answer will depend on what aspect the formula is for: the surface area or the volume being the most obvious options.

If you triplied the height of a triangular prism, would that triple it volume

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.

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