# Surface Area of a Right Square Pyramid Calculator

A square pyramid is a polyhedron with a square base and 4 triangular faces. All the triangular faces meet at a single point called the apex. Surface area of a square pyramid is the sum of the surface area of the square base and the surface area of the 4 triangular faces. Given here is an online calculator to calculate for the surface area of a right square pyramid. Just input the values of edge length of the base and height and the calculator tool will automatically update you with the surface area.

### Example:

Find the surface area of a right square pyramid of base length 3cm and slant height 5cm?

#### Solution:

Surface area of a right square pyramid = a^{2}+2a√((a/2)^{2}+h^{2})

= 3^{2}+2x3√((3/2)2+5^{2})

= 40.3209cm^{2}.
