## How to Find Volume of a Triangular Pyramid?

The volume of a triangular pyramid is the capacity of the pyramid or the measure of the amount of space it occupies and it is measured in cubic units. The volume of a triangular pyramid whose base width of triangle is 'b', the base height of the triangle is 'h', and the height of the pyramid is 'H' is calculated by the following formula:

**The volume of a triangular pyramid = 1/3 × Base Area of triangle × Height of pyramid**

Note: Base area of a triangle is 1/2 × base width of triangle × base height of the triangle

**Solved Example:**

Find the volume of a triangular pyramid with a base width of a triangle of 5 units, the base height of a triangle is 6 units, and the height of the pyramid is 9 units?

**Solution:**

The volume of a triangular pyramid = 1/3 × Base Area of triangle × Height of pyramid

= 1/3 × (1/2 × b × h) × H

= 1/3 × (1/2 × 5 × 6) × 9

= 5 × 9

= 45 cubic units.

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the volume of a triangular pyramid with the following dimensions:

1) base width of a triangle = 3 units, base height of a triangle = 6 units, and height of the pyramid = 12 units

2) base width of a triangle = 8 units, base height of a triangle = 12 units, and height of the pyramid = 14 units
