The answer depends on what measurements you do have.

Mass = Density x Volume

V = base area × height

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.

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)

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.

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.

Find the area of a triangular section, 1/2bh, and then multiply by the length of the prism.

To find the volume of a triangular prism u have to find the length, width, and height of the prism and then u multiply all of it together

by doing nothing

volume=1/2*length*width*height.

Volume of a triangular prism = cross-section area times length

No, that will not give you the volume of a prism (since it's a triangular shape, not cuboid). For volume of a prism, you need to find the area of one of the end triangles, then multiply by the length of the prism.
