Right Regular Pyramids

Right Regular Pyramid Volume = (Area of the Base * Height) ÷ 3

If some of the terminology used in this calculator seems unfamiliar to you, please read the section below or go to the regular polygon calculator.

The diagram at the top of the page depicts a right regular pyramid - a solid geometric figure whose base is a regular polygon , whose faces are all congruent isosceles triangles, and whose vertex is perpendicular to the center of base.

Like the above diagram, the Great Pyramid of Egypt has a square base and 4 triangular faces and that's what most people think of when they hear the word 'pyramid'.
However, mathematically speaking, the base could have any number of sides, 3 or greater.

Significant Figures >>>

The default setting is for 5 significant figures but you can change that by inputting another number in the box above.

Answers are displayed in scientific notation and for easier readability, numbers between .001 and 1,000 will be displayed in standard format (with the same number of significant figures.)
The answers should display properly but there are a few browsers that will show no output whatsoever. If so, enter a zero in the box above. This eliminates all formatting but it is better than seeing no output at all.
