A Square Pyramid is a three-dimensional geometric shape which tapers to a point from a square base. You can calculate the lateral surface area, base surface are, total surface area and volume of a square pyramid using the Square Pyramid Calculator with full calculations and formula

The sides, or outer surfaces are triangular and the central axis are at right angles to the base.

## Using the Square Pyramid Calculator

The Square Pyramid Calculator uses the following letters to denote specific math properties:

**Height (h)** The vertical height of the pyramid**Slope Height (s)** The length of the sloped side**Edge Length (e)** The length of the lateral edges**Base Side Length(a)** The length of the four base sides**Lateral Surface Area (L)** The surface area of the pyramid in square units excluding the base area**Base Surface Area (B)** Surface area of the base in square units**Total Surface Area (A)** Total of the lateral and base surface areas in square units**Volume (V)** The volume of the pyramid in cubic units

## The Square Pyramid Calculator uses the following equations:

### Slope Height (s)

s = √**h**^{2} + *1**/**4* a^{2}

### Surface area of base (B)

B = a^{2}

### Lateral surface area (L)

L = a √**a**^{2} + 4h^{2}

### Total area

A = L + B

### Volume

V = *1**/**3*a^{2}h
