Triangles are two dimensional, volume is three dimensional, a triangle can therefore have an area but not a volume. A right angle triangle is a plane figure not a 3d one.  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. There is not one. Triangles are two dimensional, volume is three dimensional, a triangle can therefore have an area but not a volume. The volume of a triangle can be calculated with the formula: volume=1/2*length*width*height. Well it depends on what kind of 3d shape it is. There is a formula to find the volume of each 3d shape. The main formula for volume is Bxh. (Big B multiplied by the height.) Bxh means the area of the base times the height. There is none because a triangle is a 2D shape -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There is not one. Triangles are two dimensional, volume is three dimensional, a triangle can therefore have an area but not a volume. A triangle is a 2D shape, so as such it has no volume. (Since it is a length and a width, but has no depth). The equivalent of a triangle in 3D is a triangular based pyramid, which clearly does have a volume. You may have meant "area" rather than volume? least volume and most surface area is 3D triangle  The Formula is Base*Height, or 1/2 Height (altitude of the triangle) * Base (of the Triangle) * height (Height of the prism) 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. 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.  K, well there is no surface area of a triangle, because a triangle is a 2s figure. Surface area is for a 3d figure. To find the regular area of a triangle the formula is 1/2 of the base X the height :) gl :P A triangle is a 2 dimensional object, it cannot therefore have a volume (which is a property of 3D objects.However, if you meant area, then it's half the base length multiplied by the height. There is not one. Triangles are two dimensional, volume is three dimensional, a triangle can therefore have an area but no a volume. well there is no surface area of a triangle, because a triangle is a 2s figure.

A cube.  What is a square m3? If it is a measure of hyper-volume in 6-dimensional space, then presumably the formula is analogous to the formula for volumes in 3d space. There is no such thing as a 3d triangle. A 3d shape which has only equilateral triangular faces can be a tetrahedron which has 4 faces or an icosahedron which has 20.
