# How to Calculate the Volume, Base Area and Height of a Prism | The Calculator Encyclopedia

The image above represents a prism. To calculate the volume of a prism requires two essential parameters which are the base area and height of the prism.

The formula for computing the volume of a prism is:

V = Ah

Where:
V = Volume of the Prism
A = Base area of the Prism
h = Height of the prism

Letâ€™s solve an example
Find the volume of a prism with a base area of 30 cm2 and a height of 8 cm.

This implies that:
A = base area of the prism = 30
h= = height of the prism = 8

V = Ah
So, V = 30 x 8
V = 240

Therefore, the volumeÂ of the prismÂ is 240Â cm3.

### Calculating the Base area of a prism when Volume and Height are Given

The formula is A = V / h

Where;
V = Volume of the Prism
A = Base area of the Prism
h = Height of the Prism

Letâ€™s solve an example:
Find the base area of a prism with a volume of 300 cm3Â and a height of 12 cm.

This implies that;
V = Volume of the prism = 300 cm3
hÂ  = height of the prism = 12 cm

That means, A =Â  V / h
A =Â 300Â /Â 12
A =Â 25

Therefore, theÂ base area of the prismÂ isÂ 25 cm2.

### Calculating the height of a prism when Volume and Base area are Given

The formula is h = V / A

Where;
A = Base area of the Prism
V = Volume of the Prism
h = Height of the Prism

Letâ€™s solve an example:
Find the height of a prism with a volume ofÂ  280 cm3Â  and a base area of 35 cm2

This implies that;
V = Volume of the prism = 280 cm3
A = Base area of the prism = 35 cm2

So, h =Â  V / A
h =Â 280Â /Â 35
h =Â 8

Therefore, theÂ height of the prismÂ isÂ 8 cm.
