# Volume of a Triangular Pyramid

_{base}× Height

## Volume calculator for a triangular pyramid

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

The triangular pyramid has **4 faces** both the faces and the base are triangles, it has **4 vertices** and **6 edges**. If all the triangles that form the base and the other faces are exactly the same, then we are in presence of a tetrahedron, which has a simpler formula to calculate the volume.

## Formula for the volume of a triangular pyramid

To **calculate the volume of a triangular pyramid** we need to obtain the area of the base which is a triangle different than the other faces. Knowing the base's area, then you need to multiply this area by the height of the pyramid and divide it by 3.

Remember, in order to calculate the area of a triangle we need to know the base of the triangle, multiply it by the height of the triangle and finally divide it in two.

You can also use the **online calculator** to get the volume of the ** triangular pyramid** automatically.
