Volume of a bipyramid (base regular n-sided polygon)

Description

An n-gonal bipyramid or dipyramid is a polyhedron formed by joining an n-gonal
pyramid and its mirror image base-to-base.
The volume of a bipyramid whose base is a regular n-sided polygon can be calculated by the length of the side of the base and the the height from the base to the apex.
