What is Meant by Pyramid?
In mathematics, a pyramid is a polyhedron having a base and at least three triangular faces which meet each other at a single point called the apex. Based on the base, a pyramid can be a triangular pyramid, square pyramid, pentagonal pyramid, etc. the formula to calculate the base area, surface area and the volume of the square pyramid and the triangular pyramid are as follows:
|Pyramid||Base Area||Surface Area||Volume|
|Square Pyramid||b2||2bs + b2||(⅓) b2h|
|Triangular Pyramid||½ ab||(½) ab + (3/2) bs||(⅙) abh|
- b: base length of the triangular pyramid.
- h: height of the triangular pyramid.
- s: slant height of the triangular pyramid.
- a: apothem length of the triangular pyramid.
