## How do you find the volume of a parallelogram?

The volume of the parallelepiped spanned by a, b, and c is Volume=area of base⋅height=∥a×b∥ ∥c∥ |cosϕ|=|(a×b)⋅c|. The formula results from properties of the cross product: the area of the parallelogram base is ∥a×b∥ and the vector a×b is perpendicular to the base. The height of the parallelepiped is ∥c∥ |cosϕ|.

**How do you find the volume of a triangle formula?**

Calculating volume

- Remember the formula for calculating volume is: Volume = Area by height. V = A X h.
- For a triangle the area is calculated using the formula: Area = half of base by altitude. A = 0.5 X b X a.
- So to calculate the volume of a triangular prism, the formula is: V = 0.5 X b X a X h.

**How do you find the volume of a trapezium?**

Formula for Volume of a Trapezoidal Prism. If the prism length is L,trapezoid base width B, trapezoid top width A, and trapezoid height H, then the volume of the prism is given by the four-variable formula: V(L, B, A, H) = LH(A + B)/2. In other words, multiply together the length, height, and average of A and B.

### What is volume Byjus?

In mathematics, ‘Volume’ is a mathematical quantity that shows the amount of three-dimensional space occupied by an object or a closed surface. The unit of volume is in cubic units such as m3, cm3, in3 etc. For example, the amount of water a cylindrical jar can occupy is measured by its volume. …

### What is the volume of a shape?

Volume is the amount of space a 3D shape takes up. You can work out the volume of a shape by multiplying height × width × depth. If the shape is made of cubic cm blocks, you can count the cubes to find the shape’s volume.

**Why is volume of parallelepiped?**

The height of the parallelepiped is the component of c in the direction normal to the base, i.e., in the direction of a×b. Hence the height is ∥c∥ |cosϕ|, where ϕ is the angle between c and a×b. The volume of the parallelepiped is therefore Volume=∥a×b∥ ∥c∥ |cosϕ|=|(a×b)⋅c|.

**What is the volume of a triangle?**

volume = 0.5 * b * h * length , where b is the length of the base of the triangle, h is the height of the triangle and length is prism length.

## Does a trapezoid have volume?

It is very easy to figure out the volume of a trapezoid! Simply multiply the area by its length! *Note that when measuring by volume, we are dealing with three dimensions, so the figure is cubed!

**How to calculate the volume of a base?**

Volume = 1/3 area of the base X height V = bh b is the area of the base Surface Area: Add the area of the base to the sum of the areas of all of the triangular faces. The areas of the triangular faces will have different formulas for different shaped bases. Cones Volume = 1/3 area of the base x height V= r2h Surface S = r2 + rs

**How to calculate the volume of a shape?**

The volume of three-dimensional mathematical shapes like cube, cuboid, cylinder, prism and cone etc. can be easily calculated by using arithmetic formulas. Whereas, to find the volumes of complicated shapes, one can use integral calculus. For example, the volume of the cylinder can be measured using the formula πr 2 h, where r = d⁄2.

### How to calculate the volume of a pyramid?
