A prism is a three-dimensional figure made of two equivalent parallel faces and rectangular faces that connect them. To find the volume of a prism, find the area of one of the parallel faces, and multiply by the perpendi... More »

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 »

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 »

A trapezoidal prism is a three-dimensional figure that consists of two trapezoids on opposite faces connected by four rectangles. A trapezoidal prism has six faces, eight vertices and 12 edges. 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 »
