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
