The Pyramid Frustum Weight (Mass) formula computes the weight or mass of a right square pyramid with a frustum defined by base side length (R) and top side length (r) and height (h) in between and a mean density (mD). Frustum of a Pyramid
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose the length units you wish (e.g. feet or meters), and enter the following:
The Pyramid Frustum Mass/Weight (M) is calculated and returned in kilograms. However, the user can automatically convert this to any of the other mass/weight units (e.g. pounds, 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 = mD * volume
The mean density (mD) of many common substances, elements, liquids and materials can be found by clicking HERE (e.g. the mean density of water is 1000.0 kg/m³).
