# Slant Height of a Triangular Pyramid Calculator

Here is the simple online slant height of a pyramid calculator to calculate its slant height, which is the distance of any of its lateral face from the base to the apex, along the center of the face. This calculator is used to calculate the slant height of a triangular pyramid using the Pythagorean Theorem, based on the height and base of the pyramid. The slant height of the pyramid is the hypotenuse of the right triangle formed by the height and half the base length.

## Calculate Slant Height of Pyramid

Here is the simple online slant height of a pyramid calculator to calculate its slant height, which is the distance of any of its lateral face from the base to the apex, along the center of the face. This calculator is used to calculate the slant height of a triangular pyramid using the Pythagorean Theorem, based on the height and base of the pyramid. The slant height of the pyramid is the hypotenuse of the right triangle formed by the height and half the base length.

#### Formula:

Slant Height = √(h2 + (b / 2)2) Where, h = Height of the Pyramid b = Base of the Pyramid

#### Example

A triangular pyramid with height 10 cm and base length 8 cm has a slant height of
= √(102 + (8 / 2)2)
= 10.77 cm.
