A hexagonal pyramid is a polyhedron formed by a hexagonal base and six triangular faces that converge at a single apex. This unique geometric shape has seven vertices and 12 edges, offering a variety of applications in different fields.

The hexagonal pyramid shape can be found in nature, such as in the formation of quartz crystals, or in man-made structures, such as the roofs of pagodas or modern architectural designs. This versatile shape also appears in the world of gaming, as part of complex puzzle toys or as unconventional dice for tabletop games.

Easily calculate the volume of a hexagonal pyramid with step-by-step guidance using our free calculator below.

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

## Find $$V$$

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