What is the volume of a triangular prism with a length of cm and a side of cm and a height of cm?
Volume triangular prism = area_of_triangular_base x distance_between_triangular_ends
= 1/2 x base_triangle x height_triangle x distance_between_ends
How do you find the volume of a rectangular prism relates to the volume of a tringular prism if the two have the same lengthwidthand 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.
