The formula for finding the volume for a triangular pyramid is half base x height x length. A triangular pyramid has four faces.

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.

There is no formula for this. You have to measure the volume.

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, but this answer is incorrect. the formula given is that of which for a rectangular pyramid. (learned this today in math )

The formula for a pyramid. The volume of a pyramid is (1/3)(B)(h). The volume of a cone is essentially the same: (1/3)(B=&pi;r2)(h)

The volume of a regular pyramid is 1/3*area of the base*hight

formula for finding the volume of hollow dish

go to this website... it has a diagram and equation http://www.mathsteacher.com.au/year10/ch14_measurement/25_pyramid/21pyramid.htm

formula of the volume of a prism = (base area)(height) formula of the volume of a pyramid = (1/3)(base area)(height) therefore, to convert the volume of a prism to that of a pyramid, just divide it by 3

The general formula for any type of pyramid - as well as for cones - is (1/3)Bh, where "B" is the base area, and "h" is the perpendicular height.

(1/3)Bh, that is, 1/3 times the base area times the perpendicular height.

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

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 of a rectangular prism can be found by the formula: volume=length*width*height

For finding the volume of a cube, or a rectangular prism, you multiply all of the dimensions (height*length*width=volume).

The formula for finding the volume of the square is....... nothing! Its nothing because squares are 2D and I guess you could probaly use area..... :)

The formula to find the volume of a triangular pyramid is: 1/3 (1/2 B H ) H
