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 meet in a point. To put it more simply, it is a 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 center of the pyramid and is at 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 apt of solving problems that involve the use of the following formulae:

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
