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 height of a triangular based pyramid is given by h=2V/(bxl). V is its volume, b its base and l its length.


there are two triangular based sides/faces on a triangular prism


Volume_any_pyramid = 1/3 × area_base × perpendicular_height For a triangular pyramid (tetrahedron) this becomes: volume = 1/6 × base_width × base_height × pyramid_height For the surface area there is no (easy) general formula: the area of the base triangle and the area of the three side triangles need to be worked out and added together.


The derivation of the formula of pyramid can be gained easily based on the formula for a triangular prism. A pyramid is like two prisms joined together.


A Triangular Based Pyramid is a Pyramid which has triangular faces and a triangular base. It has 4 vertices, 6 sides, and 4 faces. A Triangular Based Pyramid is also called a Tetrahedron

The formula for a triangle-base pyramid (a form of tetrahedron) isV = 1/3 Bh where B is the area of the triangular baseFind the area of the base by the formula B = 1/2 bh (height of that triangle), then multiply by 1/3 of the pyramid'sheight.

The answer depends on the what characteristic of the pyramid you want the formula for: its surface area, its volume or something else.


A triangular based pyramid has 4 vertices, 6 edges and 4 faces


No because a triangular based pyramid is a tetrahedron.

There is no formula for calculating the volume of a classroom. A classroom's volume will be calculated based upon the shape of the room. If the classroom has the shape of a cube or rectangular prism, its approximate volume can be calculated by multiplying the length by the width by the height of the room.


Assuming that pirsim is meant to be prism, the answer is that a triangular based prism has triangular bases!

A triangular based pyramid would have 4 corners; three for the triangular base and one for the peak. A pyramid has twice as many edges as sides in its base; thus a triangular pyramid has 2 × 3 = 6 edges. A triangular based pyramid is called a tetrahedron.
