The **Volume of a regular Polygon based Pyramid** calculator computes the volume of a right pyramid based on the number of sides of the polygon (n), the length of the sides (b) and the height (h).

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**n**) Number of sides on the base polygon. - (
**b**) Length of the sides of the base polygon. - (
**h**) Height of the pyramid.

**Pyramid Volume (V):** The calculator returns the volume in cubic meters. However, this can be automatically converted to other cubic units via the pull-down menu.

A regular polygon based pyramid has a polygon base where each side of the polygon is the same length and the angles connecting the sides are all equal. The formula for the volume of a regular pyramid with a polygon base is:

`V = 1/3 * h * (1/4 * b^2 * cos(pi/n)/sin(pi/n))`

where:

- V = Volume of the polygon based pyramid
- b = length of the sides of the polygon
- h = height of the pyramid.

**Volume **is a three dimensional measurement of the amount of space taken up by an object. Volume units are cubic measurements for solid objects such as cubic inches and cubic meters. Fluids have separate volume units such as liters, fluid ounces, cups, gallons, and barrel.

The volume of an object can measured by the liquid it displaces or be calculated by measuring its dimensions and applying those dimensions to a formula describing its shape. Many such calculations are available in the following list of calculators.

In many cases, the calculators are for a column with a geometric shaped base and vertical sides. One basic formula for volume is area times a Height when the volume has vertical sides.

A regular **pyramid **is a type of pyramid that has the following characteristics:

**Base**: The base of a regular pyramid is a regular polygon, meaning all sides of the polygon are equal in length, and all interior angles are equal. Examples of regular polygons include equilateral triangles, squares, and regular pentagons.**Apex**: The apex is the point directly above the center of the base. In a regular pyramid, the apex is aligned such that the line segment (height) from the apex to the center of the base is perpendicular to the base.**Lateral Faces**: The lateral faces of the pyramid are congruent isosceles triangles. Each triangle shares a side with the base of the pyramid and meets at the apex.**Height**: The height of the pyramid is the perpendicular distance from the apex to the center of the base.

Because of these properties, a regular **pyramid **is symmetric around its vertical axis (the line connecting the apex to the center of the base).
