## Related Questions The formula for finding the volume for a triangular pyramid is half base x height x length. A triangular pyramid has four faces.  It depends on triangular what: pyramid, dipyramid, prism, ... The formula to find the volume of a triangular pyramid is: 1/3 (1/2 B H ) H 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.  The answer will depend on what aspect the formula is for: the surface area or the volume being the most obvious options.     Volume = 1/3 height of pyramid multiplied by the area of the triangular base. V = 1/3 h * area of base. A triangular prism can be thought of as a stack of triangles. Then the volume is equal to the area of the triangular base multiplied by the height of the prism, or 1/2 length * width * height.  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 The volume for any pyramid = 1/3*base area*perpendicular height  The volume of a triangular pyramid can be found using the formula Volume=Base Area x height /3. Surface Area can be expressed as Surface Area =Base Area+0.5 x perimeter x side length. Volume = Area of the base X height of prism. This formula works for all prisms, not just triangular prisms. Area of a triangle = height of triangle X 1/2 X base of triangle.  The formula to find the area of a triangular prism is 1/2 bhl, where b represents the length of the base of the triangle, h is the height of the triangle, and l is the length between the triangles. A person can find the volume of a prism by 1/2 x length x width x height. This formula works for a triangular prism. There is no formula for this. You have to measure the volume.  The height of a triangular based pyramid is given by h=2V/(bxl). V is its volume, b its base and l its length.
