Program for volume of Pyramid

• Last Updated : 17 Mar, 2021

A pyramid is a 3-dimensional geometric shape formed by connecting all the corners of a polygon to a central apex.
There are many types of pyramids. Most often, they are named after the type of base they have. Let’s look at some common types of pyramids below.

Volume of a square pyramid [base of Pyramid is square] = (1/3) * (b^2) * h
Volume of a triangular pyramid [base of Pyramid is triangle] = (1/6) * a * b * h
Volume of a pentagonal pyramid [base of Pyramid is pentagonal] = (5/6) * a * b * h
Volume of a hexagonal pyramid [base of Pyramid is hexagonal] = a * b * h

Below is code for calculating volume of Pyramids :

C++

 // CPP program to find the volume.#include using namespace std; // Function to find the volume// of triangular pyramidfloat volumeTriangular(int a,                       int b,                       int h){    float vol = (0.1666) * a *                       b * h;    return vol;} // Function to find the// volume of square pyramidfloat volumeSquare(int b, int h){    float vol = (0.33) * b *                     b * h;    return vol;} // Function to find the volume// of pentagonal pyramidfloat volumePentagonal(int a,                       int b,                       int h){    float vol = (0.83) * a * b * h;    return vol;} // Function to find the volume// of hexagonal pyramidfloat volumeHexagonal(int a,                      int b,                      int h){    float vol = a * b * h;    return vol;} // Driver Codeint main(){    int b = 4, h = 9, a = 4;    cout << "Volume of triangular"         << " base pyramid is "         << volumeTriangular(a, b, h)         << endl;     cout << "Volume of square "         << " base pyramid is "         << volumeSquare(b, h)         << endl;     cout << "Volume of pentagonal"         << " base pyramid is "         << volumePentagonal(a, b, h)         << endl;     cout << "Volume of Hexagonal"         << " base pyramid is "         << volumeHexagonal(a, b, h);    return 0;}
