A hexagonal pyramid is a type of geometric solid that consists of a hexagonal base and six triangular faces that meet at a single point, forming the apex of the pyramid. It is a three-dimensional shape that is commonly used in mathematics, geometry, and architecture.

The surface area of a hexagonal pyramid can be easily calculated by using our online free calculator. The formula for the surface area of a hexagonal pyramid is shown below.

A common real-life example of a hexagonal pyramid is a honeycomb, which is made up of many hexagonal prisms joined together. Hexagonal pyramids are also found in the design of some buildings and architectural structures, such as the Louvre Pyramid in Paris, France. Additionally, some crystals and minerals, such as quartz and fluorite, can form in the shape of a hexagonal pyramid.

The formula for determining the surface area of a hexagonal pyramid is defined as:
$$SA$$ $$=$$ $$\dfrac{3 \cdot \sqrt{3}}{2}$$ $$\cdot$$ $$a^2$$ $$+$$ $$3$$ $$\cdot$$ $$a$$ $$\cdot$$ $$\sqrt{h^2 + \dfrac{3 \cdot a^2}{4}}$$
$$SA$$: the surface area of the pyramid
$$a$$: the length of any side of the base
$$h$$: the height of the pyramid
The SI unit of surface area is: $$square \text{ } meter\text{ }(m^2)$$

## Find $$SA$$

Use this calculator to determine the surface area of a hexagonal pyramid when the length of any side of the base and the height of the pyramid are given.
