Volume pyramid and prism

prisms and pyramids

We can generalize the relationship between the volume of cubes and pyramids to prisms and pyramids. For the volume of a prism we know the formula: Vprism = areabase . height The volume of a pyramid equals 1/3th of the volume of the prism with the same base and height as the pyramid. We can conclude: Vpyramid = 1/3 . areabase . height
