# What is the formula for finding the volume of a 3 dimensional triangle?

###### Wiki User

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.

A triangle is a two-dimensional shape, so it doesn't have volume. The formula for area of a triangle is 1/2bh where b=base and h=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.

There are none because volume only relates to 3 dimensional shapes and not 2 dimensional shapes as in the question.

A semi-circle is a 2-dimensional figure and so cannot have a volume.

Since a triangle is two-dimensional, it cannot have volume.

A triangle is a two-dimensional figure. It cannot have volume.

An ellipse is 2-dimensional; it has no volume. The area of an ellipse is pi * A * B, where A and B are the lengths of its axes.

Vol = 0 That is because a square is a 2-dimensional object and 2-d objects do not have a volume.

Volume is a measurement for 3 dimensional objects. A triangle is a 2-dimensional object. The area of a triangle is (base)x(height)/2

Rectangles, being two-dimensional objects, do not have volume. Rectangular prisms, on the other hand, do. The equation for their volume is length*width*height, or lwh.

A triangle can't have volume because it's a 2 dimensional shape.

Volume of square = 0, whatever its size. A square is a 2-dimensional object and 2-d objects do not have volumes.

A triangle is a two-dimensional object and so its volume must be 0.

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.

There is no formula for this. You have to measure the volume.

0. A triangle is a 2-dimensional object and so its volume - which requires a 3-dimensional object - is always zero.

You can't. Volume is only for 3 dimensional shapes. You won't find a way of using volume in any kind of 2 dimensional stuff.
