Volume of a cylinder is easy: Vol= [(pi) x radius^2] x height of cylinder] Where Pi= 3.1416 approx and radius = 1/2 of cylinder diameter The volume of a prism is complicated because it depends on the type of prism. for a regular shape prism the formula is : Vol = (area of base) x height If the prism is a "union" of differents shapes, you have to split the prism in smaller/single/easy shapes and calculate the volumes individually and then add the resulting volumes

The formula for calculating the volume of a hexagonal prism is to take the area of the hexagon, then multiply it by the height of the prism.

Area of pentagon * length of prism.

you first need to find the length, width, and height. then you multiply all those numbers together, and you have your answer.

You get units cubed, or cubic units, for a rectangular prism.

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.

multiply length * width / 2=volume

Its volume is: cross-section area times its length

1/2 h(a+b)

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.

length x width x height

It depends on what vbh stands for.

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.
