Volume of a rectangular prism calculator is used to find volume of a rectangular prism. We know the base is rectangle. The formula is, Volume = (Area of the base) x height. We can write this as, volume = length x width x height.
Example 1: find the volume of the rectangular prism with length of the base is 4cm and width of the base 3 cm and height 5 cm.
We have length of the base l = 4 cm, width = 3 cm, height = 5 cm
We have the formula, volume of rectangular prism = Area of the Base x height
First we can find the Area of the base
Area of the rectangle =length x width, we can plug the values
Then, Area of the base = 4 x 3 = 12 sq.cm
Volume of rectangular prism = 12 x 5 = 60 cubic cm
Example 2: The volume of the rectangular prism with length of the base is 9cm and width of the base 6 cm is 540 cubic cm. Find the height of the rectangular prism.
We have length of the base l = 9 cm, width = 6 cm and volume = 540 cubic cm
We have the formula, volume of rectangular prism = length x width x height
We can plug the values in the formula, and then we have
540 = 9 x 6 x height
From this we can write height of the rectangular prism = 10 cm
