surface area of a Triangular Pyramid formula

\(\large{ A_s = a^2 \;\sqrt 3 }\)

Where:

\(\large{ A_s }\) = surface area

\(\large{ a }\) = edge

Volume of a Triangular Pyramid formula

\(\large{ V=\frac{1}{3}\; A_{b} \;h }\)

\(\large{ V=\frac { a_{p}\; a\;h } { 6 } }\)

Where:

\(\large{ V }\) = volume

\(\large{ A_b }\) = base area

\(\large{ a_p }\) = apothem

\(\large{ a }\) = edge

\(\large{ h }\) = height
