Volume of prism = area of cross section x length.

calculate the overall volume as if the prism wasn't truncated and did form a central peak (v = 1/2*b*h*l), then calculate the volume of the prism above the truncation. Then deduct this from the overall volume.

A prism is a solid geometric object. If you know its shape and dimensions you can calculate its volume.

multiply length * width / 2=volume

Its volume is: cross-section area times its length

1/2 h(a+b)

You cannot calculate it without the length. However, it is possible to get the volume by submerging the prism in water and measuring the volume of the displaced water.

It depends on what vbh stands for.

Work out the area of one end, then multiply by the length.

length x width x height

if you are wondering how, multiply length times width time height.

Capacity generally implies volume in geometry. To calculate the volume of a triangular prism, find the area of one of its triangular bases and multiply it by the height of the shape.
