## What is a Triangular Pyramid?

A pyramid is a [three-dimensional solid object] polyhedron formed by connecting a polygonal base and to a point, called the apex.

## How to calculate the Volume of a Triangular Pyramid

Note that the volume of a Triangular pyramid is calculated differently to that of a Square Pyramid. Use the volume of a Square Pyramid calculator for appropriate volume calculations.

You can calculate the volume of a triangular pyramid using the Triangular Pyramid Volume Calculator by following the steps below:

- Enter Base triangle (the triangle on the bottom) height
- Enter Base triangle base width (base is bottom if stood up)
- Enter the height of the pyramid and click calculate

## Formula for calculating the Volume of a Triangular Pyramid

The Volume of a Triangular Pyramid is calculated using the following equations:

### Volume a Triangular Pyramid formula (when the base triangle area is not known)

V = *b*_{1} × h_{1} × h*/**6*### Volume a Triangular Pyramid formula (when the base triangle area is known)

V = *A × h**/**3*### Area of the base triangle in a Triangular Pyramid formula

A = *b*_{1} × h_{1}*/**2*Note: Remember to use the same measurement unit for each dimension when calculating the volume of an object.

The volume of solid objects are measured in:

- cubic feet
- cubic meters
- cubic yards

The volume of liquids are measured in:
