# 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.

## 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:

**Then change the following variables with your values:**

**l** shall be changed with the *Length* of your regular prism. As an example **l** could be changed to 10.**w** shall be changed with the *Width* of your regular prism. As an example **w** could be changed to 10.**h** shall be changed with the *Height* of your regular prism. As an example **h** could be changed to 10.

- 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.
