# Square Pyramid Calculator

A Square Pyramid can be referred to as a three-dimensional geometric figure that has a square base and four triangular sides that all link in one point. To put it more simply, it is pyramid with a square base. Interestingly enough, the Pyramid of Giza represents a Square Pyramid.

The sides of a triangular pyramid are all triangles. The axis runs through the centre of the pyramid and is at right angle to its base.

Square Pyramid Shape

Dimension Value Notes
Height (h) The vertical Height of the pyramid
Slope Height (s) The length of the sloped side
Edge Length (e) The length of the lateral edges
Base Side Length (a) The length of the four base sides
Lateral Surface Area (L) The surface area of the pyramid in square units excluding the base area
Base Surface Area (B) Surface area of the base (in square units)
Total Surface Area (A) Total of the lateral and base surface areas (in square units)
Volume (V) The Volume of the Pyramid (in cubic units)

You may set the number of decimal places in the online calculator. By default there are only two decimal places.

### The online Square Pyramid Calculator is apt of solving problems that involve the use of the following formulae:

Slope Height (s) = √(h2 + (1/4) a2)

Lateral surface area (L) = a √(a2 + 4h2)

Surface area of base (B) = a2

Total Area = L + B

Volume = (1/3)a2h
