Holt CA Course 1 10-8 Volume of Prisms Vocabulary Volume Volume of Prisms Formula

Holt CA Course 1 10-8 Volume of Prisms Volume is the number of cubic units needed to fill a space.

Holt CA Course 1 10-8 Volume of Prisms You need 10, or 5 · 2, centimeter cubes to cover the bottom of this rectangular prism. You need 3 layers of 10 cubes each to fill the prism. It takes 30, or 5 · 2 · 3, cubes.

Holt CA Course 1 10-8 Volume of Prisms Volume is expressed in cubic units, so the volume of the prism is 5 cm · 2 cm · 3 cm = 30 cubic centimeters, or 30 cm 3.

Holt CA Course 1 10-8 Volume of Prisms The volume of a rectangular prism is the area of its base times its height. This formula can be used to find the volume of any prism.

Holt CA Course 1 10-8 Volume of Prisms Teacher Example 1: Finding the Volume of a Rectangular Prism Find the volume of the rectangular prism. B = 26 · 11 The base is a rectangle. Multiply.B = 286 13 in. 26 in. 11 in. Step 1: Find the area of the base.

Holt CA Course 1 10-8 Volume of Prisms Teacher Example 1 Continued: Find the volume of the rectangular prism. V = Bh Write the formula. V = 286 13Substitute for B and h. Multiply.V = 3,718 in 3 13 in. 26 in. 11 in. Step 2: Find the volume. The volume of the prism is 3,718 in 3.

Holt CA Course 1 10-8 Volume of Prisms Student Practice 1: Find the volume of the rectangular prism. B = 29 · 12 The base is a rectangle. Multiply.B = 348 Step 1: Find the area of the base. 16 in. 29 in. 12 in.

Holt CA Course 1 10-8 Volume of Prisms Student Practice 1 Continued: Find the volume of the rectangular prism. V = Bh Write the formula. V = 348 16Substitute for B and h. Multiply.V = 5,568 in 3 Step 2: Find the volume. The volume of the prism is 5,568 in 3. 16 in. 29 in. 12 in.

Holt CA Course 1 10-8 Volume of Prisms You can also use the formula V= Bh to find the volume of a triangular prism. For triangular prisms, B represents the area of a triangle, rather than a rectangle.

Holt CA Course 1 10-8 Volume of Prisms Teacher Example 2: Finding the Volume of a Triangular Prism Find the volume of each triangular prism. A. Step 1: Find the area of the base. The base is a triangle. B = ( 3.9 1.3) 1 2 __ Multiply.B = 2.535
