Designate one of the faces as the base, and the distance between the plane the base is on, and the plane the opposite side is on, as the height. Then the volume is the base times the height.

When it is a 90o angled block then multiply all LxWxH (and all in cm) to find the volume in cm3.However when it is a parallelepiped*), then calculation needs also the three corner angles been given.If a, b, and c are the parallelepiped edge lengths, and α, β, and γ are the internal angles between the edges, the volume is:V = a.b.c.SQRT[1 + 2cos(α).cos(β).cos(γ) - cos2(α).cos2(β).cos2(γ)]*) a parallelepiped is a three-dimensional figure formed by six parallelograms, sometimesthe term rhomboid is used with this meaning)

What is the volume of the prism with measurements of 6 5 and 3?

I presume you mean a rectangular prism. Assuming all the angles are right angles, so that it is a rectangular parallelepiped, the volume is just the product of the three dimensions. I get 90.

What is the volume of rectangle 4m long and 2m wide?

A rectangle is one of the six faces of a cuboid (a rectangular parallelepiped). The area of a rectangle 4m long and 2m wide is 8m2. Multiply this by the thickness (or depth) of the cuboid to obtain its volume.
