Irregular Prism Volume Calculator

Below, there is some general information that will give you basic understanding of what kind of geometric shape an irregular Prism is as well as it will make crystal-clear how to distinguish between a regular prism and an irregular one. Finally, it will show how to work out the volume of an irregular prism.

The online calculator that can be observed just below is apt of calculating the volume of an irregular prism, making hard tasks much easier for the user. The sum of several irregular prisms can be calculated as long as the user inserts several irregular prism metrics. Additionally, the calculator will allow to view the volume of each irregular prism involved in the calculations.

Basic definition and general information about an Irregular Prism

A prism is said to have the prism's cross sections running all along its length. The diagram below is used to illustrate an example of an irregular prism that has been divided into sections. It is important to note that each cross section of an irregular prism disposes of the same dimensions and area.

Irregular Prism Volume

The basic definition of an irregular prism would be a figure that does not comply with the general mathematical rules.

The following formula is applied when calculating the Volume of an Irregular Prism:

  • Volume = Base Area × Height

Note: It is crucial to keep in mind that when working with the volume of an object the same measurement units should be applied to all of the dimensions.

Units used for calculating the volume of solid objects like the irregular prism are as follows:

  • feet cubed
  • meters cubed
  • yards cubed

Units used for calculating the volume of liquids are:

  • liters
  • quarts
  • pints
  • gallons

Measurements, inserted by the user, will be used by the online Irregular Prism Calculator to carry out the calculations of the volume electronically.

The user will also be provided with a running total which will accumulate as new dimensions are introduced into the Volume Calculator.
