Volume of Pyramid With Square BaseDate: 9/14/96 at 17:30:44 From: John Leonard Subject: Volume of Pyramid With Square Base What is the volume of a pyramid with a a height of 20.6 meters and a square base with sides of 35 meters? Date: 9/14/96 at 21:16:33 From: Doctor Robert Subject: Re: Volume of Pyramid With Square Base The formula for the volume of a pyramid is V = (1/3)Ah where A is the area of the base, h is the height, and V is the volume of the pyramid. Now you know that h = 20.6 meters and you should be able to figure the area of a square of side 35 meters. A = 35^2 = 1225 sq meters. So, the volume is V = (1/3)(1225)(20.6) = 8411.666... cubic meters -Doctor Robert, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
