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:

  1. Enter Base triangle (the triangle on the bottom) height
  2. Enter Base triangle base width (base is bottom if stood up)
  3. 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 = b1 × h1 × 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 = b1 ×h1/2

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:

  • litres
  • quarts
  • pints
  • gallons
