The volume is doubled.

Because the volume of a rectangular prism is the product of its length, width, and height, if these linear measures are doubled, the volume will increase by a factor of 23 = 8.

For the same base dimensions (base area) and the same height, the rectangular prism has more surface area.

The formula for the surface area of a rectangular solid is = 2lw + 2lh + 2wh 2(length x width)+2(length x height)+2(width x height)

A rectangular prism with a length of 11m, width of 8m and height of 3m has a volume of 264m3

The change in the surface area depends on the shape. The volume will double.

The surface area of the 'wall' doubles, but the base areas remain the same.
