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)
Mass = Density x Volume
The volume of any prism is worked out in the same way whether it's a hexagonal prism, circular prism or a triangular prism. You just need to times the length of the prism against the area of the cross-section.
The answer depends on what measurements you do have.
area of base x height area of base x 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)
Base times height divided by two times length
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
What is the formula for a triangular prism
It depends on what information you have.
In both cases, volume = cross-sectional area x length
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.
