Volume of a Square Prism

Let us solve some examples to understand the concept.

Solved examples

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) = a2l, here a = 5 in, l = 8.5 in
V = 52 × 8.5
= 212.5 in3

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) = a2l, here a = 6.5 ft, l = 12 ft
∴ V = (6.5)2 × 12
= 507 ft3
