# Prism (Volume & Surface Area) Calculator

getcalc.com's Prism Formulas & Calculator is an online basic geometry tool to calculate volume & surface area of the shape of rectangular & triangle prism, in both US customary & metric (SI) units.

## Steps to Find Area & Volume of a Rectangular Prism

The step by step workout for how to find what is the volume and surface area of a rectangular prism. Students may use this prism calculator to generate work with steps for any other similar input values.workout :
step 1 Address the formula, input parameters and values
Length = 5 in
Width = 3 in
Height = 6 in

step 2 Apply length, width and height values in below volume formula
Volume V = lwh
= 5 x 3 x 6 in³
Volume V = 90 in³

step 3 Apply length, width and height values in below surface area formula
Surface area A = 2 (lw + lh + wh)
= 2 ((5 x 3) + (5 x 6) + (3 x 6)) in²
= 2 (15 + 30 + 18) in²
= 2 x 63 in²
Surface area A = 126 in²

## Prism & Formulas

Prism is a three dimensional plane or geometric shape having both the ends very similar, parallel and equal line lengths. A square or rectangle base with the sides of squares called the rectangle prism, whereas a triangle face with rectangle base called the triangle prism. K-12 students may refer the below formulas of pyramid to know what are all the input parameters are being used to find the volume & surface area of rectangular or triangular prism.
