I am designing a trapezoidal prism basin that must contain a certain volume per acres contributing to the basin. Therefore, I would like to create a function that will size the basin.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is: how can I determine the volume between two different areas? In this case these two areas are trapezoids. I know A = a((b1+b2)/2) for area of a trapezoid.

Let's say b1 is the smaller side of the trapezoid.

In this case trapezoid 1 and 2 will have b11 = b12 while a1 and a2 will not be equal and neither will b21 and b22.

I believe that knowing this information will be the key to determining other partial volumes that I will ultimately sum to provide the total volume.

Thank you for any help you may have!!
