A triangular prism has a triangular base. A square-based prism has a square base. A prism with an n-sided base will have 2n vertices, n + 2 faces, and 3n edges.

Cones have a circular base and a triangle prism has a triangular base

False, the prism can be of any length.

Volume of a triangular prism = (1/2.b.h)Hb = base of the triangleh = height of the triangleH = height of the actual prism. = multiplied byThe volume of a prism is volume equals base times height. You have to know the base and height to find the volume.

You find the area of the base and then find the area of one triangle. Multiply that one triangle by 4 and then add the base. The above is correct for a triangular pyramid NOT a triangilar prism. A triangular prism has two triangular ends and three rectangular faces. The rectangular faces need no be the same shape, but if they are, So Area = 2*area of triangular ends + 3*area of rectangular faces If not, you'll just have to calculate each area separately and add them.

To find the volume of a triangular prism, find the area of one of the triangles (base of the prism) first (base x height divided by 2). When you have the area of the triangle, then multiply the area of the triangle by the height of the prism, *not the height of the base.

A triangular prism.

Assume that a = apothem length of the triangular prism, b = base length of the triangular prism, and h = height of the triangular prism. The formulas to find the surface area is SA = ab + 3bh.

All you have to do is find the area divide it by the base and then you get the height.
