Area of trapezoidal cross-section x length.

To find the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the base, width, and height. If the prism is irregularly shaped, multiply the base and the 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 formula for the volume of a prism is V = AlSee related link below for more help

The volume of a prism is the area of the base (or the cross section of the prism that is perpendicular to the height) times the height.V = Ab * h

If you mean volume of a trapezoidal prism then it is: 0.5*(sum of parallel sides)*height*length

Volume = 1/2*(a+b)*h*l where a and b are the lengths of the parallel sides of the trapezium, h is the height of the trapezium, and l is the length of the prism.

The volume of a rectangular prism can be found by the formula: volume=length*width*height

the volume of a trapezoidal prism is equal to the height times the base area of the trapezoid. First you find the area of trapezoid h(a+b)/2 h is the height of the trapezoid, not the height of the prism a is the length of the top b is the length of the bottom Then you find the volume of the trapezoidal prism with this formula H*h(a+b)/2 H is the height of the prism. Multiply H by the area of the trapezoid that you found in step one.

Area of trapezoidal cross-section x length.

You must be thinking of a triangular prism. In that case, c is the length of the third side of the triangle at the end of the prism.

Volume = (length) times (width) x (height)

Perimeter = area + b1 + b2 + c P = a + b1 + b2 + c

V = l × w × h

For finding the volume of a cube, or a rectangular prism, you multiply all of the dimensions (height*length*width=volume).

To find the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the base, width, and height. If the prism is irregularly shaped, multiply the base and the height.
