Calculate the volume of prisms and cylinders
How to calculate the volume of prisms and cylinders
A prism is a 3D shape where its crosssection is the same along it’s length. In other words, if you cut a prism anywhere along its length, the shape formed is identical to the ends of the prism.
For example, a prism with a square crosssection is a cuboid, a circle crosssection gives a cylinder and a triangle prism gives a triangular prism!
The base multiplied by the length (l) gives the volume of a prism.
The base is either end of the prism, and is an area (units are in cm2!), when multipled by length it gives the volume 3 dimensions and is in cm^{3}.
For example, the volume of a cyclinder is V = (2πr) x length
