## What is the formula for finding the area of a pyramid?

Example 1: The general formula for the total surface area of a regular pyramid is T. S. A. =12pl+B where p represents the perimeter of the base, l the slant height and B the area of the base.

## What is the total surface area of a pyramid?

What is the Total Surface Area of Pyramid? The total surface area of a pyramid is obtained by adding the areas of all its faces (both the base and the side faces). The total surface area of a pyramid whose base perimeter is ‘P’, the base area is ‘B’, and slant height is ‘s’ is TSA = (1/2) Ps + B.

**What is the formula of triangular pyramid?**

The formula used to calculate the volume of a triangular pyramid is given as, 1/3 × Base Area × Height. Here, the base area can be found using any of the area of triangle formulas depending upon the type of triangular base and known parameters.

**What is the slant height of the pyramid?**

The slant height of an object (such as a frustum, or pyramid) is the distance measured along a lateral face from the base to the apex along the “center” of the face. In other words, it is the altitude of the triangle comprising a lateral face (Kern and Bland 1948, p. 50).

### What is the equation for a rectangular pyramid?

The formula for the total surface area of a rectangular pyramid is calculated by adding up the area of all rectangular and triangular faces of a pyramid, which is T.S.A. = lw + l√[(w/2)2 + h2] + w√[(l/2)2 + h2], where, l = Length of the rectangular base.

### What is the example of cylinder?

Cylinder is a three-dimensional solid figure, in geometry, which has two parallel circular bases joined by a curved surface, at a particular distance from the center. Toilet paper rolls, plastic cold drink cans are real-life examples of cylinders.

**What is formula of slant height?**

The slant height can be calculated using the formula a^2 + b^2 = c^2. In the formula, a is the altitude, b is the distance from the center of the base to the point where the slant height segment starts, and c stands for the slant height.
