## Square Pyramid Tutorial

##### Square Pyramid Definition:

A Square Pyramid is a pyramid with a square base.

#### Square Pyramid Formula :

Area of Base(A) = s² Surface Area of Pyramid = s² + 2sl = A + 2sl Volume of Pyramid = (1/3)b²h
###### where
s,b = side, h = height and l = slant height
##### Square Pyramid Image/Diagram ##### Case 1:

Find the surface area and volume of a square pyramid with the given side 3, height 4 and the slant height 5.

###### Step 1:

Find the area of the base. Area of the base(A) = s² = 3² = 9.

###### Step 2:

Find the surface area of pyramid. Surface Area of Pyramid = A + 2sl = 9 + (2 * 3 * 5) = 9 + 30 = 39.

###### Step 3:

Find the volume of pyramid. Volume of Pyramid = (1/3)b²h = (1/3)b²h = (1/3)* 3² * 4 = 0.33 * 9 * 4 = 12. The above example will clearly illustrates how to calculate the Volume, Surface Area of a Square Pyramid manually.
