The volume of a square prism is the space it occupies in the three-dimensional plane. It is measured in cubic units such as m^{3}, cm^{3}, mm^{3}, ft^{3}.

The formula is given below:

Let us solve some examples to understand the concept.

**Find the volume of a square prism with a base edge of 5 in and length of 8.5 in.**

Solution:

As we know,

Volume* (V) = a ^{2}l, *here

∴

= 212.5 in

**Find the volume of a prism with a square base of 6.5 ft and length of 12 ft.**

Solution:

As we know,

Volume* (V) = a ^{2}l, *here

∴ V = (6.5)

= 507 ft
