A triangular prism can have right angles. If the prism has two triangular ends, then each of the three 'sides' meets each of the ends at right angles.

A right-angled triangular prism is called a right prism. The formula for calculating the volume of a prism is V = B x h, where B = area of base, and h = height of the prism.The area for the base is calculated using the formula B = 1/2(length x height) (area of a triangle).Example: The height of a prism is 10 cm. The base is a right triangle with legs of length 5 cm and 12 cm, soB = 1/2(5x12)B = 30cm2V = B x h = 30cm2 x 10cmV = 300cm3

A right-angled triangular prism!

f you looked at the bottom of a pyramid and saw a right triangle it would be a right triangular prism. It would have 3 triangular faces extending up from the bottom. The last sentence refers to a right tetrahedron, not a prism. A triangular prism has two triangles at either end, and three rectangles joining them - like a pencil with a triangular cross-section.

The volume of a three-dimensional figure is the amount of space it encloses. The volume V of a triangular prism is the product of the area B of a base and the height h of the prism. (The bases are triangles. In a special case of a right triangular prism the bases are right triangles)

Base times height divided by two times length

Do you mean, what is the volume of a (right) triangular prism? Multiply the area of one end by the length of the prism.

1/2 * base * height * thickness

No, it is not.

The two nets of a regular right triangular prism are surface area and volume.

V= 1/2(length*width*height)
