Pyramids area named based on their shape of base. Hence, any pyramid in which its base is square in shape can be called as the square pyramid. The below given is the Base area of a square pyramid formula which helps you in the surface base area of the right square pyramid. According to the base area of a square pyramid formula, squaring the side length of the square pyramid gives you the base area value. The value of achieved result will be based on the unit of input you use.

Where,

b = Base Surface Area

a = Side length

The above Base Area of a Square Pyramid Formula is a simple that can be remembered easily. The surface area of the pyramid is different from the base surface area, so this formula is not applicable for determining surface area.
