# How do you find the volume of a three dimensional shape?

**three**measurements together to find the

**volume**using either paper and pencil or a calculator. This is the equation:

**Volume**= length x width x height.

Similarly, how do you find the volume of a 3d polygon?

**3D** shapes have **volume**: the amount of cubic space inside of them. To **find volume**, you basically need the three dimensions: length, width, and height. For prisms, the formulas are derived by taking the area of the shape at the end, and multiplying that times the figure's height.

Subsequently, question is, how do you find the volume of all shapes? **Volume** of Rectangle-Based Solids Whereas the basic formula for the area of a rectangular shape is length × width, the basic formula for **volume** is length × width × height. How you refer to the **different** dimensions does not change the calculation: you may, for example, use 'depth' instead of 'height'.

Besides, what is the formula of volume?

Calculating **Volume** The **formula** to find the **volume** multiplies the length by the width by the height. The good news for a cube is that the measure of each of these dimensions is exactly the same. Therefore, you can multiply the length of any side three times. This results in the **formula**: **Volume** = side * side * side.

What is the formula for area of all shapes?

Area of Plane Shapes

Triangle Area = ½ × b × h b = base h = vertical height | Square Area = a^{2} a = length of side |
---|---|

Rectangle Area = w × h w = width h = height | Parallelogram Area = b × h b = base h = vertical height |
