Rectangular Prisms
Definition: A rectangular prism is a geometric solid enclosed by six flat surfaces formed by rectangles.
Volume of a Prism
Volume is a measure of how much space a solid takes up.
Volume is measured in cubic units. For example, cubic feet or cubic yards.
The volume of a container is a measure of how much the container will hold.
Volume of a rectangular prism is found by:
Volume = B x h
B is the area of the base (length multiplied by the width of the base)
h is the height of the prism
We will use the formula V= L x W x H this is Volume = Length x Width x Height
Reasons for knowing and understanding how to find Volume of a rectangular prism
How much water can my fish tank hold?
How much can I fit into a moving box, tuck bed, or storage unit?
How much mulch, concrete, or rock do I need for my outdoor project?
Understanding volume of a container can help you determine whether to measure capacities in milliliters, liters, or kiloliters.
