# Volume of a Tetrahedron

## Volume calculator for a tetrahedron

## Description, how many faces, edges and vertices are there in a tetrahedron

**The tetrahedron**, is a triangular pyramid, where each face is an equilateral triangle; In case one of the faces (triangles) is not equal to the rest, it is considered an irregular tetrahedron or as a triangular pyramid and another formula is used to calculate the volume.

A tetrahedron (tetra = 4 and hedron = face), has **4 faces** (equilateral triangles), has **6 edges**, and has **4 vertices** where 3 edges meet.

## Formula for the volume of a tetrahedron

To **calculate the volume of a tetrahedron** divide the square root of 2 into 12, then multiply the result by the edge to the power of 3 (since the tetrahedron is made up of equilateral triangles, you can use any edge). You can also use the online calculator to **calculate the volume of the tetrahedron automatically**.
