This volume of rectangular prism worksheet will introduce the students to the concept of volume and how to calculate it for a rectangular prism. This will also help them to understand the unit conversion of different parameters.
5 Interactive Ways for Volume of a Rectangular Prism Worksheet
Here, we have discussed 5 fun ways to evaluate the volume of a rectangular prism. Every method consists of an interactive worksheet where we have given some practice problems.
Definition and Example of a Rectangular Prism
A rectangular prism is a three-dimensional solid geometric shape that has six faces and each face is a rectangle. It is also known as a cuboid. A rectangular prism consists of eight vertices, twelve edges, and six rectangular faces. Here is the image of a rectangular prism.
Examples of rectangular prisms are boxes, bricks, and books.
Formula for Volume of a Rectangular Prism
The volume of a rectangular prism can be estimated by two formulas. If you the area of the prism and the height of it, then the Volume= Area✖Height.
When the area is unknown but you know the three sides (Length (l), Width (w), and Height (h)) then the
Volume = Length X Width X Height.
V=l X w X h.
The Volume of a Rectangular Prism with Area and Height
If you know the area of the rectangular surface and the height of your rectangular prism then the output of these two will give you the volume of the rectangular prism. You may have the values in integer form or decimal form.
Volume for Integer Value
When you have both the value in the integer form then the volume will also be in integer form. Follow the below process to calculate the volume.
This is a PDF worksheet to calculate the volume of the rectangular prism.
Volume for Decimal Value of a Rectangular Prism
Here, the values of area or height, or both are in decimal form.
Suppose we need to find the volume of a rectangular object with an area of 26.85 unit² and a height of 5.52 units. Follow the solution given in the picture below to learn it.
Here, is the PDF worksheet for your practice.
Calculating the Volume of a Rectangular Prism For Side Lengths
If you are given the sides of the prism, then it is quite easy to calculate the volume. All you need is to just multiply the three sides ( length, width, and height) and the output will be the volume of the rectangular prism worksheet. You can calculate it for both integers and fractions.
Volume for Integer Value
The values are in the integer form here. The output will be in integer form also.
This is the PDF for the volume of a rectangular prism worksheet.
Volume for Fraction Value
The three sides will be in fraction mode. The procedure for calculating the volume is similar to the above process. You need to multiply the fractions to get the volume.
Now, it’s time for your practice. Here is the PDF of the volume of a rectangular prism worksheet.
The volume of a Rectangular Prism Worksheet from Table
Here, we have attached a worksheet to practice the volume of a rectangular prism where the dimensions are given in the table. From the value in the table, you need to calculate the volume of the rectangular prism.
We have attached the PDF of the volume of a rectangular prism worksheet from the table.
Unit Conversion for Calculating Volume of a Rectangular Prism Worksheet
In this section, we will demonstrate to you how to change the unit to your preference to estimate the volume of a rectangular prism worksheet.
This is the PDF of the volume of the rectangular prism worksheet for unit conversion.
Exploring Missing Dimension from Volume of Rectangular Prism
You can also find the missing dimensions if you know the volume of a rectangular prism worksheet. Suppose, you want to know the height of a prism where the volume is given. So, the equation will be,
Volume= Length ✕ Width ✕ Height.
Height = Volume/(Length✕Width)
Now, practice from the PDF of the volume of a rectangular prism worksheet to master this skill.
