The pentagonal prism is a prism having two pentagonal bases and five rectangular sides.
Find the surface area and volume of a pentagonal prism with the given apothem length 2, side 3 and height 4.
Find the area of the base. Area of the base(A) = ½ * a * 5 * s = 0.5 * 2 * 5 * 3 = 15.
Find the perimeter of the base. Perimeter of the base(P) = 5s = 5 * 3 = 15.
Find the surface area of prism. Surface Area of Prism = 5as + Ph = (5 * 2 * 3) + (15 * 4) = 30 + 60 = 90.
Find the volume of prism. Volume of Prism = Ah = 15 * 4 = 60. The above example will clearly illustrates how to calculate the Volume, Surface Area, Perimeter of a Pentagonal Prism manually.
This tutorial will help you dynamically to find the Math area problems.
