Best Answer

The height of a pyramid is taken to be the vertical distance from the centre of the base, to the tip of the pyramid. I.e Not the slope height, which will be longer than the vertical height.

If you're asking about the height of an actual pyramid in Egypt, they vary a lot. They're not all a standard size.

slant height of the pyramid Louvre in Paris=28 meters

Volume of the pyramid: 1/3*base area*height in cubic m

The volume of a pyramid with 12'' height and 8'' base is: 256 cubic inches.

The surface area of the pyramid is superfluous to calculating the slant height as the slant height is the height of the triangular side of the pyramid which can be worked out using Pythagoras on the side lengths of the equilateral triangle: side² = height² + (½side)² → height² = side² - ¼side² → height² = (1 - ¼)side² → height² = ¾side² → height = (√3)/2 side → slant height = (√3)/2 × 9cm = 4.5 × √3 cm ≈ 7.8 cm. ---------------------------- However, the surface area can be used as a check: 140.4 cm² ÷ (½ × 9 cm × 7.8 cm) = 140.4 cm² ÷ 35.1 cm² = 4 So the pyramid comprises 4 equilateral triangles - one for the base and 3 for the sides; it is a tetrahedron.

1/3(b*h) b means the base of the pyramid h means the height of height of the pyramid. The height is not to be confused with the lateral height (Which is the slanted height.) The height is found by drawing a segment from the vertex (or apex) of the pyramid to the center of the base.
