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 »

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 »

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 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 »
