1/2*p*w^2*l

surface area prism = 2 × area end + total area side = 2 × area end + perimeter end × length of prism The information given to you will allow you to work out the area of one pentagonal end, and the perimeter of the pentagonal end.

I know the surface area. 2B+ lateral (Ph)

You can't.

The fact that it's a prism has nothing to do with the area of the base. See the attached Related Link for your formula.

It is the sum of the area of the lateral faces

It is the sum of the area of the lateral faces

It depends on the prism. Is it a triangular prism, a rectangular prism, a pentagonal prism... etc..

The lateral area of a prism is the sum of the areas of all the lateral faces. A lateral face is not a base. The surface area is the total area of all faces.Lateral Area: The lateral area of a right prism with base perimeter P and height h is L=Ph.Surface Area: The surface area of a right prism with lateral area L and base area is B is S = L + 2B, or S = Ph + 2B.

Volume = area of pentagon x length of prism.

Area of Base x Height

The lateral area is the perimeter of the hexagon times the height (altitude length) of the prism. Same for any other prism.
