# Volume of Rectangular Prism

Volume of Rectangular Prism In mathematics, we will learn about different types of prism such as regular prism, irregular prism and so on. Here we will discuss Volume of Rectangular Prism. Before discuss about volume of a prism first we need to learn about a prism. In geometry prism can be defined as a type of solid object which is having two ends identical and all sides of a prism are flat. Now we will see how to find Volume of Rectangular Prism. The formula to find the Volume of Rectangular Prism is given as: Volume of a rectangular prism = l * b * h, here ‘l’ is the length, ‘b’ is the breadth and ‘h’ is height of a rectangular prism. Steps to follow to find the volume of rectangular prism is mention below: Step 1: To find the volume of a rectangular prism, we need to have the value of length, breadth and height. Suppose the length, breadth and height of a rectangular prism is 8 inch, 6 inch and 5 inch respectively then we have to find the volume of rectangular prism.

Step 2: If we put these all value in the formula then we can easily find the volume of a rectangular prism. As we discuss above the volume of a rectangular prism is given as: Volume of a rectangular prism = l * b * h, Given length = 8 inch, breadth = 6 inch and height = 5 inch. Step 3: At last put all these values in the formula to get volume. Volume of a rectangular prism = l * b * h, On putting all the above values we get: Volume of a rectangular prism = 8 * 6 * 5, Volume of a rectangular prism = 240 inch2. So the volume of a rectangular prism is 240 inch2. Now we will see the different formula to related to the prism. First we will see the formula used for finding the total area of prism. The total area of right prism is given as: Total area of right prism = LA + 2B or, Total area of right prism = (p) (h) + 2B, here ‘L’ or ‘P’ denotes the perimeter of a prism and h is the height of a prism. There are different types of prism in geometry. Some types of prism are shown below: 1. Regular prism 3. Right prism 5. Parallelepipeds 2. Irregular prism 4. Oblique prism 6.

8. Square prism 10. Hexagonal prism:

Now we will talk about the lateral area of a prism. The formula for finding the lateral area of prism is given as: The lateral area of a prism = p * h, here, ‘p’ denotes the perimeter of a base, and ‘h’ denotes the height of a prism. And the volume of a prism is always equal to the area of the base that is multiplied by the height of the prism. Volume of a prism = b * h, here ‘b’ denotes the base of a prism, and ‘h’ denotes the height of a prism. This is all about the prism.
