# Pyramid (Volume, Surface Area & Lateral Surface) Calculator

getcalc.com's pyramid calculator is an online geometry tool to calculate volume, surface area & lateral surface of a rectangular pyramid shape, in both US customary & metric (SI) units.

## Steps to Find Volume, Surface Area & Lateral Surface Area of a Pyramid

The step by step workout for how to find what is the volume, surface area & lateral surface area of a pyramid.Workout :
step 1 Address the formula input parmaeter & values
Length = 5 in
Height = 3 in
Width = 4 in

step 2 Find Pyramid Volume using length, height and width values
Volume V = lwh/3
=5 x 4 x 3/3in³
= 60/3in³
Volume v = 20 in³

step 3 Find Surface Area using length, height and width values
Surface Area = lw + l √(w/2)² + h² + w √(l/2)² + h²

= (5 x 4) + 5 √(4/2)² + 3² + 4 √(5/2)² + 3² in²

= 20 + 5 √(2)² + 3² + 4 √(2.5)² + 3² in²

= 20 + 5 √(4) + 9 + 4 √(6.25) + 9 in²

= 20 + 5 √13 + 4 √15.25 in²
= 20 + (5 x 3.6056) + (4 x 3.9051) in²
= 25 + 18.0278 + 15.6205 in²
Surface Area = 53.6483 in²

step 4 Find Lateral Area using length, height and width values
Lateral Area = l √(w/2)² + h² + w √(l/2)² + h²

= 5 √(4/2)² + 3² + 4 √(5/2)² + 3² in²

= 5 √(2)² + 3² + 4 √(2.5)² + 3² in²

= 5 √(4) + 9 + 4 √(6.25) + 9 in²

= 5 √13 + 4 √15.25 in²
= (5 x 3.6056) + (4 x 3.9051) in²
= 18.0278 + 15.6205 in²
Lateral Area = 33.6483 in²

## Pyramid & Formulas

Pyramid is a three dimensional plane or geometric shape, a polyhedron having its base of one polygon with any number of sides and the other faces are triangle with common vertices connecting at the top middle point called the apex. K-12 students may refer the below formulas of pyramid to know what are all the input parameters are being used to find the volume, surface area & lateral surface of pyramid.
