To find the volume of a triangular prism, multiply the base area by the length of the prism. You need to know the base area and the length of the prism. Use a ruler, a pen, a divider, a piece of paper and a calculator. More »

A triangular prism has nine edges. It consists of a triangular base, a translated copy of the base and three quadrilaterals, for a total of five faces and six vertices. More »

A triangular prism has six vertices. In order to calculate the number of vertices on any type of prism, take the number of corners on one side and multiply by two. For example, a rectangular prism has eight vertices, or ... More »

The volume of a prism is worked out by first calculating the area of the surface and then multiplying that figure by the length of the prism. This applies whatever the shape a prism takes. More »

Multiply the length of each side of the triangle by the depth of the prism separately, then multiply the base of the triangle by its height. Add these four figures together. More »

The faces of a triangular prism are parallelograms while the two bases are triangles. This gives the prism three faces. In a regular prism, the faces are rectangles. However, some prisms lean to one side and are oblique. More »

Calculate the surface area of a triangular prism using the formula (b x h) + (S1 + S2 + S3) H. You need the value of "b," or base of the triangle, "h," or height of the triangle, S1, S2, S3 or sides of the triangle, and ... More » Math Geometry Shapes
