We study different Types of Prisms in mathematics like rectangular Prism, square prism etc. Here we will discuss triangular prism. A Solid figure that has two identical ends and also has flat sides is known as prism. Now we will see how to find the volume of a triangular prism. Formula to find volume of a triangular prism is given as:
Volume of Triangular Prism = al; Where, ‘a’ represents the area of one triangular end face and 'l' denotes the length of prism.
Let’s follow steps to find volume of triangular prism.
Step 1: To find the volume of prism first it is necessary to find area and length of prism. Suppose we have area and length of prism is 120 inch2, 15 inch respectively.
Step 2: Then we put these values in formula. As we know that volume of triangular prism is given by: Volume of Triangular Prism = AL.
So volume of triangular prism = 120 * 15, on solving further we get:
Volume of prism = 1800 inch2. This is how we find volume of a triangular prism. Now we will see some formulas based on prism. Formula to find surface area of triangular prism is given by: Surface area of Triangular Prism = 2B + PH, or we can also write it as: Surface area = BH + (s1 + s2 + s3) H;
Here, ‘B’ denotes area of base, ‘p’ is the perimeter of base, ‘h’ is the height of triangular prism, and s1 s2 s3 are sides of triangle.
