Voluem of Pyramid ( Method I )


A pyramid is a polyhedron formed by connecting a polygonal base and a point called the vertex (apex). Each base edge and apex form a triangle.

A Regular Pyramid

A regular pyramid is a pyramid whose base is a regular polygon and whose lateral edges are all equal in length. A pyramid is named by its base: eg, Triangular pyramid , Square pyramid, Hexagonal pyramid

Square Based Pyramid

A square based pyramid has a square on its base and four congruent triangle on each lateral face.

Volume of Pyramid= 1/3 Base area x Height

Let us take a cube of length a units . Also take center O of the cube. This center can be obtained by intersection of its diagonals. In this intersection, there exist six pyramids whose vertex is at O, height is a/2 units and base is the face of cube. Then, 6 x Volume of Pyramid = Volume of Cube Volume of Pyramid = (Volume of Cube) = (Base Area x Height) = (Base area x a ) = (Base Area x ) = ( Base Area x Height of pyramid ) ( Dear learner, तलको APPlLEt मा दिएको slider लाई चलेर हेर्नुहोला )
