# Height of a Triangular Pyramid Calculator

A pyramid is a structure or monument Eg: Egyptian Pyramid. Pyramids usually have a quadrilateral base, which rises to a triangular point at the top. The triangular pyramid height can be calculated if the apothem (or slant height) of the side and the base are known. Use the below height of a triangular pyramid calculator to find the pyramid height with the known values. Just input the values in the required fields and the calculator will give the height of the pyramid.

#### Formula:

Height = √(h^{2} - (b/2)^{2})
**Where,**
h =Slant Height
b = base

#### Example

**A triangular pyramid with base 5 cm and slant height 10 cm. **

Height of a triangular Pyramid = √( 10^{2} - (5/2)^{2} )

=√( 100 -6.25)

=9.6825 cm
