Surface Area of a Triangular Prism Worksheets
Before setting off on a journey into this assortment of printable worksheets, it’s necessary to know the relation between the net and surface area of a solid. Visualize the net of a triangular prism made of three rectangles and two congruent triangles. If you add the area of these five shapes using their respective formulas, you’ll end up in the surface area. Simply put, the surface area of a 3d figure is nothing but the area of its net. Implement this fact and find the surface areas of the prisms with bases in the shapes of equilateral, isosceles, scalene, and right triangles in these pdf worksheets, ideal for students of grade 6 through high school. Get off to a flying start with our free worksheet!
Make an all-out effort and keep 6th grade and 7th grade students au fait with finding the surface area of triangular prisms! Sum up the areas of three rectangular faces and two triangular bases to arrive at the surface area.
Plug the decimal dimensions in SA = bh + (s1 + s2 + s3)H, where ‘b’ and ‘h’ are the base length and height of the triangle; ‘s1’, ‘s2’, and ‘s3’ are the lengths of three sides of the triangle; ‘H’ the prism's height, and find the surface area.
Apply the Pythagorean theorem and figure out the height of the triangular base; find the base area using the height; add up twice this area to the sum of the areas of the rectangular faces and determine the surface area of prisms.
