VOLUME OF A PYRAMIDSOLID GEOMETRY IS CONCERNED WITH THREE-DIMENSIONAL SHAPES. IN THIS LESSON, WE WILLLEARN: What is the formula ofTypes of Pyramid Pyramid? Parts of Pyramid
Volume of a Pyramid A Pyramid is a solid with a polygon base and connected by triangular faces to its vertex. The lateral faces meet at a common vertex. The height of the pyramid is the perpendicular distance from the base to the vertex. A Pyramid is a regular pyramid if its base is a regular polygon and the triangular faces are all congruent isosceles triangles. The pyramid is named after the shape of its base. A rectangular pyramid has a rectangle base. A triangular pyramid has a triangle base. A Right Pyramid is a pyramid in which the vertex is vertically above the center of the base. If the vertex is not vertically above the center of the base then it is an oblique pyramid.
Parts of Pyramid A Pyramid is madeby connecting a base to an apex.
Volume of a PyramidWhat is the formula ofPyramid? The volume of a pyramid is equal to one- third the product of the area of the base and the height. The volume of a pyramid is given by the formula:
