Prisms are three-dimensional objects with two equal bases or edges, flat surfaces or sides, and the same cross-section along their length. A cube is a prism, but unlike a cube which has 6 equal square faces, a rectangular prism has six rectangular faces and 12 edges. It has a length, width and height that form 3 pairs of equal rectangular surfaces: top-bottom, left-right and front-back. Examples of objects in the shape of a rectangular prism are shoe boxes, books, buildings and cupboards.
The total surface area of a rectangular prism is the sum of the areas of all six rectangular sides. Remember that the area of a rectangle is the product of its length and width:

The volume of a rectangular prism is the total amount of space it occupies and can be defined as the product of its length, width and height.
The volume of a rectangular prism also indicates its capacity – or how much space in an object can be filled. Volumes are expressed in cubic units such as m
. If the volume refers to the capacity of the prism, it can also be expressed in liters (L) or milliliters (mL).
Finally, let’s find the volume by substituting the given numbers into the volume formula and multiplying them.
How To Find The Volume Of A Prism
How many rectangular barrels can fit into a rectangular container 5m long, 3m wide and 4m high if each barrel is 0.5m long, 15m wide and 2.5m high?
Determine how many kegs can fit in the container by dividing the volume of the container by the volume of the keg.
Finally, determine how many barrels the container can hold by dividing the volume of the container by the volume of the barrel.
