Volume of a pyramid (The base is a regular polygon)


A pyramid is a polyhedron formed by connecting a polygonal base and a point, called the apex. Each base edge and apex form a triangle. It is a conic solid with polygonal base. For a pyramid whose base is a n-sided regular polygon the volume can be calculated by the length of the side length of the base and the height of the pyramid
