Its volume is: cross-section area times its length

You cannot calculate it without the length. However, it is possible to get the volume by submerging the prism in water and measuring the volume of the displaced water.

It depends on what vbh stands for.

The volume of any prism is the product of the area of the base and the distance between the two bases(i.e. Height)

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

Volume of prism = area of cross section x length.

calculate the overall volume as if the prism wasn't truncated and did form a central peak (v = 1/2*b*h*l), then calculate the volume of the prism above the truncation. Then deduct this from the overall volume.

Measure, then multiply(length of the prism) x (width of the prism) x (height of the prism) .The product of the three dimensions is the volume of the prism.

A prism is a solid geometric object. If you know its shape and dimensions you can calculate its volume.

Its volume is: cross-section area times its length

The volume of any right prism is the area of the base, in this case a trapezoid, multiplied by the height of the prism. The formula for the area of a trapezoid is A = 1/2h(a + b) where a and b are the bases of the trapezoid (the parallel sides). Once you calculate the area of the trapezoidal base of the prism, multiply that number by its height to get its volume.

You cannot calculate it without the length. However, it is possible to get the volume by submerging the prism in water and measuring the volume of the displaced water.

Work out the area of one end, then multiply by the length.
