## Truncated pyramid volume

A truncated pyramid is a pyramid with its top cut off by a plane parallel to its base. To find the volume of a truncated pyramid, you can use the following formula:

V = \dfrac{1}{3}h\left( S_1 + \sqrt{S_1S_2} + S_2 \right)

where V is the volume of the truncated pyramid, h is the height of the truncated pyramid, and S₁ and S₂ are the areas of the top and bottom sides of the truncated pyramid.

Our truncated pyramid volume calculator makes it easy to find the volume of your truncated pyramid. Simply enter the height of the truncated pyramid, the area of the top and bottom bases, and our calculator will automatically give you the volume.

## Here's how to use the calculator:

- Enter the area of the bottom base of the truncated pyramid in the first box.
- Enter the area of the top base of the truncated pyramid in the second box.
- Enter the height of the truncated pyramid in the third box.
- The calculator will automatically calculate the volume of your truncated pyramid.

## Truncated Pyramid Volume Examples

Here are some examples of finding the volume of a truncated pyramid using the formula:

### Example 1

Find the volume of a truncated pyramid with a height of 5 units, a top area of 7 units, and a bottom area of 9 units.

V = \dfrac{1}{3}5\left( 7 + \sqrt{7*9} + 9 \right)

V = \dfrac{1}{3}5*7.93

V = 39.9 \text{cubic units}

### Example 2

Find the volume of a truncated pyramid with a height of 8 units, a top area of 4 units, and a bottom area of 10 units.

V = \dfrac{1}{3}8\left( 4 + \sqrt{4*10} + 10 \right)

V = \dfrac{1}{3}8*6.32

V = 54.2 \text{cubic units}
