# What is the formula of volume for a square pyramid?

One-third times the area of the base times the height:

1/3 x (LW) x h

In the case of a square pyramid, the length and width of the base are the same, so you could rewrite the formula as:

1/3 x s2 x h

where s = the length of one side of the base

### What is the formula for finding the volume of a square pyramid?

This is too general. The following equation is for the volume of a square pyramid, where v= volume, l= length of the base, w= width of the base, and h= height of the pyramid: v=(1/3)*l*w*h In other words, volume=(one divided by three) times length times width times height Volume is measured in "cubic" units. The volume of a figure is the number of cubes required to fill it completely, like blocks in a box. Sorry…

### How do you solve volume of a pyramid?

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

### Find the volume of a triangular pyramid?

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

### How do you prove the formula for the volume of a square pyramid?

You really can't "prove" the formula. You use it. You first square the base 'b'. Then, you multiply that number by the height 'h'. Then, you divide the product of the base squared and height by 3. Boom! You get your answer. In my school, we get a formula sheet with all the formulas we will need to use. If you didn't understand the description above, here is the formula for a square pyramid:1/3b2 h…

### How do you find the volume of a frustum?

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. <><><><> 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

### How do you calculate the volume of a pyramid that has no top ie that has a large square base and a small square top?

You calculate the volume of a pyramid by multiplying one third of the base area by the perpendicular height. 1/3 Area of base x Height Depending on what you know of the pyramid, one of these methods determines the volume. Method 1: Calculate the volume of the whole pyramid including the missing piece at the top (which is a small pyramid by itself) Calculate the volume of the small missing pyramid. Subtract the small volume…

### If the volume of a prism is 999 square inches what is the volume of a pyramid with the same base?

If the VOLUME is 999 SQUARE inches then you have gone wrong. SQUARE inches are a measure of AREA VOLUME is measured in CUBIC units. Assuming you meant The volume of a prism is 999 CUBIC inches, then the volume of a pyramid with the same height is indeterminate (cannot be given), as there is NO INDICATION of how the height of the pyramid relates to the height of the prism. So, ASSUMING you mean…

### What is the height of a square pyramid that has a volume of 3600cm and its sides are 90cm?

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…
