That way you can know the volume of anything. That we we know that the volume of a square is the length of the sides^2 * height.

Prisms, which include rectangular and triangular prisms as well as cylinders, are popular shapes of containers because the have a flat base. The general formula would be Area of the Base(B) times height(H).
