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.

To find the volume of a triangular prism u have to find the length, width, and height of the prism and then u multiply all of it together

No, that will not give you the volume of a prism (since it's a triangular shape, not cuboid). For volume of a prism, you need to find the area of one of the end triangles, then multiply by the length of the prism.

One half base times height of the triangle times length of the prism.

The volume of a prism is A = Bh , where B is the area of the base, and the height (length) must be perpendicular to the base. The volume of a square-sided triangular prism is A = 1/2 bhL where the triangular cross section has base b, and height h, and the perpendicular length is L.

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.

Find the area of a triangular section, 1/2bh, and then multiply by the length of the prism.

The volume of any prism is worked out in the same way whether it's a hexagonal prism, circular prism or a triangular prism. You just need to times the length of the prism against the area of the cross-section.

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

The answer depends on what measurements you do have.

Volume of a triangular prism = cross-section area times length

No, that will not give you the volume of a prism (since it's a triangular shape, not cuboid). For volume of a prism, you need to find the area of one of the end triangles, then multiply by the length of the prism.

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.

Mass = Density x Volume

V = base area × height
