Square Pyramid Calculator

With this Square Pyramid Calculator, you can determine various properties of a square pyramid by inputting only two variables.

A square pyramid is a three-dimensional geometric figure that has a square base and four triangular sides that meet at a point. In simpler terms, it is a pyramid with a square base. The Pyramid of Giza is an example of a square pyramid.

The sides of a square pyramid are made up of four triangles and a square base. The axis runs through the center of the pyramid and is at a right angle to its base.

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

Base Surface Area (B):  sq. units
Lateral Surface Area (L):  sq. units
Total Surface Area (A):  sq. units
Volume (V):  cu. units

The online Square Pyramid Calculator is capable of solving problems that involve the use of the following formulas:

Slant Height (s) = √(h2 + (1/4) a2)

Lateral Surface Area (L) = a √(a2 + 4h2)

Surface Area of Base (B) = a2

Total Surface Area = L + B = a √(a2 + 4h2) + a2

Volume = (1/3)a2h
