The formula will depend on what it is that you are trying to find: the volume or the surface area.

If the prism is a rectangular parallelepiped (that is, all the angles are right angles), just add the squares of the 3 dimensions (length, width, and height) together, and take the square root. This involves 2 applications of the Pythagorean Theorem.

The formula for calculating the volume of a cuboid is width x length x height

The volume of any right prism (the floor and ceiling are identical in shape) = Base area * heightSA = BA + LASA = BA + phLA=ph

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

You can't tell the dimensions of a rectangle from its area, or the dimensions of a prism from its volume.

Just knowing the volume in centimeters cubed of a rectangular prism would not allow you to find the dimensions.

To find the volume of a rectangular prism, multiply the length of that prism by the width and height of that prism.

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

Volume of a rectangular prism is length x height x width.

You cannot. It could be a long narrow prism or a short squat one and the volume alone does not tell you which one of these shapes - or something in between - the prism has.

Volume of rectangular prism = area of base x height

The answer depends on what information you have been provided with. If you have only the linear dimensions then it is:Length * Breadth * Height
