Finding the Volume of a Rectangular Prism
A Rectangular Prism looks like a box and has a
3-dimensional (3D) shape.
The formulas for volume of a Rectangular Prism is
v = l * w * h or v = b * h
v is the volume
l is the length of the base.
w is the width of its base.
h is the height
b is the area of its base
Example: find the volume of the Rectangular Prism
Formulas is v = L * w * h
l = 6 cm
w = 4 cm
h = 5 cm
v = 6 * 4 * 5 = 120 cm
You can find the volume of a prism by counting
Example: the volume of this prism is 20 cubic centimeter (cm).
There are two layer with 10 cubes in each layer. The
volume is 20 cubic centimeter or 20 cm
