Calculator for Rectangular Prism Volume

This calculator will help you find the volume of a regular prism. The formula used in this calculator is listed below.

To use this calculator, you will need to know the length, width and height.

To give you a better mental model of the regular prism, you can look at the visualization below. You can navigate the 3d-model of the regular prism as you like.


Volume = 2,000.0

Regular Prism Volume Formula

Formula variable explanation:

  • R represents the volume.
  • l represents the Length.
  • w represents the Width.
  • h represents the Height.

LaTeX formula

If you are working in a TeX based editor you could use this TeX formula to calculate the regular prism volume.

R=\mathrm{l}\cdot w\cdot\mathrm{h}

How To Calculate The Regular Prism Volume Your Self

Calculating the volume is rather simple when you know the formula presented above. Follow these steps:

  1. Write down this formula:

  2. Then change the following variables with your values:
    1. l shall be changed with the Length of your regular prism. As an example l could be changed to 10.
    2. w shall be changed with the Width of your regular prism. As an example w could be changed to 10.
    3. h shall be changed with the Height of your regular prism. As an example h could be changed to 10.
  3. Now you can enter this in to your calculator and you will get your answer.

Regular Prism Characteristics

The following are properties of a regular prism:

  • A rectangular prism is a three-dimensional shape.
  • Rectangular Prisms can also be called cuboids.
  • Rectangular prisms have 12 edges, 6 faces and 8 vertices
  • There is two types of rectangular prisms, right rectangular prisms and oblique rectangular prisms.
  • The angles between faces in a right rectangular prism is always 90°.
  • The top and the base is congruent. Meaning their form is identical. The same is true for the sides.
