The Volume of the Frustum of a Right Squared-base Pyramid calculator computes the volume of a right square based pyramid with a frustum defined by base side length (R) and top side length (r) and height (h) in between.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Pyramid Frustum Volume (V): The volume is returned in cubic meters. However, the user can automatically convert this to any of the other volume units (e.g. cubic feet, liters, or gallons) via the pull-down menu.
A Right Square Pyramid has a four sided base where all four sides are equal and have equal angled corners (90o), which is a square. The pyramid is a right pyramid if the apex of the pyramid is directly above the center of the base square. The formula for the volume of a pyramid with a triangle base is:
`V = 1/3 * h*(R^2+R * r+r^2)`
