Rule

The volume of the prism is calculated by multiplying the base's area by its height.

$V=Bh$

By Cavalieri's principle, this formula holds true for all types of prisms, including skewed ones.

Recall that the volume of a solid is the measure of the amount of space inside the solid. Note that the top and bottom faces of the prism are always the same and parallel to each other.

Additionally, the prism is, so to speak, filled

with identical base areas that are stacked on top of each other to the height of the prism.

$V=hB+B+B+…+B+B ⇓V=B⋅h $
