A triangular prism is one of the different types of prisms and as the name suggests, the triangular prism consists of triangular bases. The bases are congruent triangles and supporting the bases are the parallelograms placed surrounding the prism. Volume of a triangular prism is the amount of space contained inside the prism and this space is measured using the volume formula of the prism. Volume of a triangular prism is the product of the triangular base and the height of the prism.

Example 1:Findthe volume of a triangular prism whose base of the triangle is 2m, height of the triangular base is 3m and length of the prism is 5m?

Given: base of the triangular prism ==> b= 2m

Height of the base triangle, h = 3m

Length of the prism, l = 5m

Volume of a triangular prism, V = 1/2 * b * h * l

This gives, volume, V= 1/2 * 2m * 3m * 5m= 15m3

Therefore, volume of the given triangular prism is 15m3

Example 2: Findthe volume of a triangular prism whose base of the triangle is 3.6, height of the triangular base is 5m and length of the prism is 6m?

Given: base of the triangular prism ==> b= 3.6m

Height of the base triangle, h = 5m

Length of the prism, l = 6m

Volume of a triangular prism, V = 1/2 * b * h * l

This gives, volume, V= 1/2 * 3.6m * 5m * 6m= 54m3

Therefore, volume of the given triangular prism is 54m3
