the volume changes as radius squared and linear with height, so tripling radius and double of height gives 3 x 3 x 2 = 18 times more volume

One half base times height (of the triangular section) times length.

The volume is equal to the area of the base multiplied by the height. So, to find the height, just divide the volume by the area of the base.

The Formula is Base*Height, or 1/2 Height (altitude of the triangle) * Base (of the Triangle) * height (Height of the prism)

The general way to find the volume for any shape is the formulaV=Bh (volume equals base times height). The specific formula used to find the volume of a triangular prism is V=1/2(or 0.5)bhh (volume equals one half or 0.5 times base times height times height again.

Yes, the volume triples. When you have a height of 18, the volume will equal 864. (Volume of a pyramid is the area of the base x the height x 1/3)18*3=54. When you plug this in to the above listed formula, the volume will be 2592. Divide that by three and you get 864.

triangular prism- formula: Abh(area of the base * 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.

base*height*length*.5

Volume = 1/3*base area*height

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

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.

One half base times height (of the triangular section) times length.

Volume = 1/3 * Base area * Height So Base area = 3 * Volume / Height

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.
