Lectii de viata sez 3 ep 89

The formula works because the area of a triangle is half the area of a rectangle with the same base and same height. b. i. What is the formula to find the volume of a triangular prism? For base area and height of prism 𝒉, 𝑽= 𝒉. ii. Explain why the formula works. A triangular prism is essentially a stack of congruent triangles. Volume of Triangular Prism given two side lengths and angle can be defined as the amount of space which the shape takes up provided the value of side lengths and angle for calculation and is represented as V = L *0.5* S a * S b * sin (Angle BetweenSides) or volume = Length *0.5* Side A * Side B * sin (Angle Between Sides).
