## How do you find the frustum of a square pyramid?

Table of Contents

Let the square WXYZ be the base and P, the vertex of a right pyramid. If a plane parallel to the base WXYZ of the pyramid cuts it in the plane W’X’Y’Z’ then the portion of pyramid between the planes WXYZ and W’X’Y’Z’ will be a frustum of the given pyramid.

**What is frustum of square pyramid?**

The frustum is a pyramid that is the result of chopping off the top of a regular pyramid. That is the reason why it is called a truncated pyramid. The distance between the base and the top of the pyramid is the height and is denoted by h.

### How do you calculate a truncated pyramid?

Thus, the formula of volume of a truncated pyramid is V = 1/3 × h × (a2 + b2 + ab) where “V”, “h”, “a” and “b” are volume of the truncated pyramid, height of the truncated pyramid, the side length of the base of the whole pyramid, and the side length of the base of the smaller pyramid.

**How do you find the volume of a truncated square pyramid?**

The formula for the volume of a truncated square pyramid with height h, and top edge a cm and bottom edge b cm is V = 1/3*(a2 + ab + b2)*h.

#### How do you calculate frustum?

There are two formulas that are used to calculate the volume of a frustum of a cone. Consider a frustum of radii ‘R’ and ‘r’, and height ‘H’ which is formed by a cone of base radius ‘R’ and height ‘H + h’. Its volume (V) can be calculated by using: V = πh/3 [ (R3 – r3) / r ] (OR)

**What is the formula for frustum?**

Answer: The conical Frustum formulas in terms of r and h is as follows: Volume of a conical frustum = V = (1/3) * π * h * (r12 + r22 + (r1 * r2)).

## What is frustum and truncated?

As nouns the difference between frustum and truncation is that frustum is a cone or pyramid whose tip has been truncated by a plane parallel to its base while truncation is the act of truncating or shortening (in all senses).

**What are truncated pyramids?**

a truncated cone or pyramid; the part that is left when a cone or pyramid is cut by a plane parallel to the base and the apical part is removed.

### What is the volume of frustum shown in Figure?

Hence, the volume of the frustum shown in the figure is 359 cm³.
