The volume of a triangular prism can be found by the formula:
**natttt***Posted on 2011-01-21 18:12:08*

Vol = 1/2 * length * width * height.

One example:

The cross-section of a prism is a horizontal triangle whose sides are 6 cm, 8 cm and 10 cm. The vertical height of the triangular prism is 12 cm. Calculate the volume of the prism.

The solution is:

In triangle ABC: 8² + 6² = 64 + 36 = 100 = 10²

By the converse of Pythagoras" Theorem

Vol = 1/2 bhl

Vol = 1/2 * 8 * 6 * 12 = 288 cm³
