# Volume of a pyramid

## Description

In geometry, a pyramid is a polyhedron formed by connecting a polygonal base and a point, called the apex. Each base edge and apex form a triangle. It is a conic solid with polygonal base.The volume of a pyramid can be calculated by the area of the base and the height from the base to the apex.

(This works for any polygon, regular or non-regular, and any location of the apex, provided that h is measured as the perpendicular distance from the plane which contains the base).

## Variables

V_{pyramid} | volume of a pyramid (m^{3}) |

B | area of the base (m^{2}) |

h | height of pyramid (m) |
