# How to find the volume of a pentagonal prism

## How do you find the volume of a pentagonal prism?

The volume of a pentagonal prism = area of base × height

Thus, the formula for the volume of a pentagonal prism is: **Volume = (5/2 × abh) cubic units** where, a = Apothem length of the pentagonal prism. b = Base length of the pentagonal prism.

## How do you find the surface area and volume of a pentagonal prism?

The total surface area of pentagonal prism

**= 2 × area of the base of pentagonal prism + lateral surface area of the pentagonal prism**. Therefore, the total surface area of pentagonal prism = 5ab + 5bh.## What is the formula of volume of prism?

The formula for the volume of a prism is

**V=Bh**, where B is the base area and h is the height. The base of the prism is a rectangle. The length of the rectangle is 9 cm and the width is 7 cm. The area A of a rectangle with length l and width w is A=lw .## What is the base of a pentagonal prism *?

## How do you find the Pentagon of a prism?

## How will you differentiate a pentagon from a pentagonal prism?

A pentagonal prism has 15 edges, 7 faces, and 10 vertices. The base of a pentagonal prism is in the shape of a pentagon. The sides of a pentagonal prism are shaped like a rectangle. A pentagonal prism is a type of heptahedron, which is a polyhedron with seven plane faces.

## What is a pentagonal prism example?

A pentagonal prism is a three-dimensional box whose bottom and top have five sides instead of the normal four. This means that the box also has five sides instead of the typical four.
