# What is a pyramid and how do you find its volume?

567

A pyramid is any three-dimensional polyhedron where the faces other than the base are triangular and converge at one point, called the apex.

The formula for finding the volume of a pyramid is .

There are some tutorials at the related link below that can help you figure out how to use this formula.

## Related Questions  To find the perpendicular height of a square pyramid, first compute for the volume of the pyramid. Then divide the volume by the area of the base to find pyramid's height. The formula to find the volume of a triangular pyramid is: 1/3 (1/2 B H ) H Find the area of the base, find the height of the pyramid. Volume = (1/3)*(area of base)*(height) Volume = 1/3*base area*height and measured in cubic units Volume of a pyramid in cubic units = 1/3*base area*height Volume of a squared based pyramid: 1/3*base area*height You have to find out the area of the base which you find out with perpendicular height times base then time that by the perpendicular height of the pyramid and divide it by 3  Volume = 1/3 height of pyramid multiplied by the area of the triangular base. V = 1/3 h * area of base. The volume of a pyramid is: Volume= 1/3 area of base (length * width) * height OR V= 1/3LWH * * * * * A pyramid can have a base that is any convex polygon - not just a rectangle. So the "length * width" part of the formula is not generally valid.  Wouldn't a circle-based pyramid look a lot like a cone ? If so, you could probably use the formula for the volume of a cone and get away with it. The volume for any pyramid = 1/3*base area*perpendicular height No pyramid can have a volume of 3600 cm since that is a measure of distance: volume is measured in cubic units.No pyramid can have a volume of 3600 cm since that is a measure of distance: volume is measured in cubic units.No pyramid can have a volume of 3600 cm since that is a measure of distance: volume is measured in cubic units.No pyramid can have a volume of 3600 cm since that is a measure of distance: volume is measured in cubic units. first your not even spelling write 2nd there is no such thing if you need to find the volume of the pyramid in rome   A pyramid has a base and triangular sides which rise to meet at the same point. The base may be any polygon such as a square, rectangle, triangle, etc. The general formula for the volume of a pyramid is:Area of the base * Height * 1/3 The volume of a pyramid with a rectangular base is equal to: Length_of_base * Width_of_base * Height * 1/3 Volume of a pyramid is (1/3)*(area of base)*(height) = (1/3)*(6 in)2*(8 in) = 96 in3 If it is the frustum of a pyramid: The volume of a pyramid (with a square base) is: Length_of_base * Width_of_base * Height * 1/3 To get the volume of the frustum, subtract the volume of the top part (also a pyramid) from the full volume. &lt;&gt;&lt;&gt;&lt;&gt;&lt;&gt; frustum of a cone the formula is (h*pi)/3*(r1^2+r2^2+r1*r2) this is where h = height r1= top radius r2=bottom radius The volume of a regular pyramid is 1/3*area of the base*hight The volume of a pyramid with base area B and height h is:V =1/3Bh. Volume of a pyramid in cubic units = 1/3*base area*height
