the volume of a trapezoidal prism is equal to the height times the base area of the trapezoid. First you find the area of trapezoid h(a+b)/2 h is the height of the trapezoid, not the height of the prism a is the length of the top b is the length of the bottom Then you find the volume of the trapezoidal prism with this formula H*h(a+b)/2 H is the height of the prism. Multiply H by the area of the trapezoid that you found in step one.

Volume = area of cross-section*length

It depends on the shape.

Well it depends on what kind of 3d shape it is. There is a formula to find the volume of each 3d shape. The main formula for volume is Bxh. (Big B multiplied by the height.) Bxh means the area of the base times the height.

That depends what shape you are talking about.

If it is a rectangular trapezoidal pedestal: Calculate the area of the base of the pedestal, multiply by the height of the pedestal. If the angles of the pedestal are not 90deg.. i.e. if it is a pyramidal trapezoidal pedestal. Then calculate the volume as you normally would a rectangular trapezoidal pedestal, and subtract the volume of the missing triangular pieces with the formula 1/3 area of base X height.
