The Pyramid Weight (Mass) calculator computes the weight or mass of a pyramid of base area (A), height (h) and mean density (mD). Pyramid
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose the units you wish for area (e.g. cm2) and height (e.g. inches) and enter the following:
The calculator computes the mass (M) in kilograms. However the user can automatically convert this to many other mass/weight units (e.g. pound or tons) via the pull-down menu.
This formula computes the volume of the geometric shape based on the input parameters. With the computed volume, this formula then executes the simple equation below to compute the approximate mass of the object.
`mass = mu_(density) * volume`
The mean density (`mu_(density)`) of many common substances, elements, liquids and materials can be found by clicking HERE (e.g. the `mu_(density) (water)` is 1000.0 kg/m³).
