Formula:

b=√ (3 x (v / h)) Where, b = base length v = volume of square pyramid h = height of square pyramid

Example:

A square pyramid has a Volume of 15 m3 and height of 8m. Find Length of the Base Edges of the Square Pyramid.

Solution

Base length = √ (3 x (15 / 8))
=√ (3 x 1.85)
=√ 5.625
= 2.3717 m
