Volume of the right rectangular prism, V, is the product of the, A, area of base and, h, height of the prism. The base of the rectangular prism is, rectangle. So the area of the base is product of length and breadth or width. The formula for finding the volume of right rectangular prism is V = lwh.

### Formula for Volume of a Rectangular Prism

The formula for the volume of any right prism,

=>

V = Ah

Where, A = area of the base and h = perpendicular height

Now

If prism is a rectangular prism.
=> Area of the base = lw

=> V = A x h

= lw x h

=> V = lwh

The volume of a rectangular prism is found by the formula, V = lwh.

**Formula:**

Volume of a rectangular prism = lwh.

Where,

'l', 'w' , 'h' are the length, width and height of the prism.
