Trying to figure this out too...

If the area of the base of the tetrahedron is A square units and the vertical height is h units, then the volume is V = 1/3*A*h cubic units. If the tetrahedron is regular, with sides of length of length s units, then V = sqrt(2)/12*s3 cubic units.

It depends on whether or not the tetrahedron is regular. There is nothing in the question to indicate that it might be regular. In that case the easiest way to calculate the surface area is to sum the areas of each of its 4 faces.

Well, a tetrahedron has four sides. A regular tetrahedron is a triangular pyramid.

A tetrahedron must be plane faced and so, it is just an ordinary tetrahedron.

A tetrahedron is a solid figure with four triangular faces. As these may or may not be regular (all the same), the formula is to add the area of all four together. The formula for the area of a triangle is 1/2(base x height).

There are two possible structures for a tetrahedral molecule with the formula AHXYZ. One structure is where the central atom (A) is in the center of the tetrahedron, and the other is where A occupies one of the vertices of the tetrahedron.

A silica tetrahedron is composed of four atoms of silicon and one atom of oxygen.
