### Material Needed (Triangle) Definition

The Material Needed Calculator (Triangle) offers an easy way to determine the number of cubic yards of material required to fill a triangular prismatic space. This calculator is very helpful for gauging the amount of material necessary for certain types of construction work, which can be important when assessing project cost.

### Using the Material Needed Calculator (Triangle)

1. In field one, labeled “Side 1,” enter the length, in feet, of the first side of the triangular prism. A decimal can be used if the measurement is not a whole number.

Examples:

• If the length is eight feet, enter “8”.
• If the length is one foot, nine inches, enter “1.75”.
• If the length is nine feet, eight inches, enter “9.66”.

2. In field two, labeled “Side 2,” enter the length, in feet, of the second side of the triangular prism. A decimal can be used if the measurement is not a whole number. For examples, refer to #1, above.

3. In the third field, labeled “Side 3,” enter the length, in feet, of the third side of the triangular prism. A decimal can be used if the measurement is not a whole number. For examples, refer to #1, above.

4. In the fourth field, labeled “Depth (inches),” enter the depth, in inches, of the triangular prism. Use a decimal if the measurement includes a fraction.

Examples:

• If the triangular prism is eleven inches deep, enter “11”.
• If the triangular prism is five and one-half inches, enter “5.5”.
• If the depth is twenty and three-quarter inches, enter “20.75”.

5. Click the “Calculate” button.

The results are shown below the “Calculate!” button in cubic yards, and are rounded to the closest one-hundredth of a cubic yard.
Note: If the calculator returns the result “0.0,” review your input to ensure that you entered valid values in each of the fields (i.e. numbers larger than zero).

### Calculating Triangle Area

This calculator is only useful for computing a triangular prism’s volume; it cannot be used to determine the area of a triangle. To calculate the a triangle’s area, go to the Triangle Area Calculator. Also, check out the original Materials Needed Calculator
