## Related Questions 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 person can find the volume of a prism by 1/2 x length x width x height. This formula works for a triangular prism. triangular prism- formula: Abh(area of the base * height) It depends on triangular what: pyramid, dipyramid, prism, ... 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. The formula to find the area of a triangular prism is 1/2 bhl, where b represents the length of the base of the triangle, h is the height of the triangle, and l is the length between the triangles. Find the area of a triangular section, 1/2bh, and then multiply by the length of the prism.  The volume of a rectangular prism can be found by the formula: volume=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 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) Assume that a = apothem length of the triangular prism, b = base length of the triangular prism, and h = height of the triangular prism. The formulas to find the surface area is SA = ab + 3bh.  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.  Volume of a triangular prism = cross-section area times length  For finding the volume of a cube, or a rectangular prism, you multiply all of the dimensions (height*length*width=volume). 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)
