'Cuemath's Surface Area of the Square Pyramid Calculator' is an online tool that helps to calculate the surface area of the square pyramid.

**What is the Surface Area of Square Pyramid?**

Cuemath's online calculator helps you to calculate the Surface Area of the Square Pyramid in a few seconds.

**How to Use the Surface Area of Square Pyramid Calculator?**

**Follow the steps mentioned below to find the surface area:**

**Step 1: Enter the slant height of the square pyramid and edge length of the base in the respective input box.****Step 2: Click on "Calculate" to find the surface area of the square pyramid.****Step 3: Click on "Reset" to clear the fields and enter the new values.**

**How to Find the Surface Area of Square Pyramid?**

## A square pyramid** ****is defined as a three-dimensional solid figure with a square base and four triangular faces /sides that meet at a point if all the triangular faces have equal edges and are called an equilateral square pyramid. If the apex (meeting point) is directly above the center of the base then it's called a right square pyramid. Thus surface area of the pyramid is equal to the sum of the area of the base and the area of all the four triangular faces.**

**Surface Area of the Square Pyramid = (2 × b × s) + b ^{2}**, where 'b' is the edge length of the base, and 'h' is the slant height of the square pyramid

**Solved Example :**

**Find the surface area of a square pyramid with slant height h = 4 units and base b= 3 units?**

**Solution : **

**The surface area of a square pyramid = (**2 × b × s) + b^{2}

= (** **2 × 3 × 4) + 3^{2}

= 24 + 9

= 33 square units.

Therefore, the surface area of a square pyramid is 33 square units.** **

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the surface area of the square pyramid

**1) h = 20, b = 20**

**2) h = 35, b = 10**
