Tetrahedral pyramid

Calculate the surface S and the volume V of a regular tetrahedral pyramid with the base side a = 5 m and a body height of 14 m.

Correct answer:

V =  116.6667 m3
S =  167.2146 m2

Step-by-step explanation:

a=5 m h=14 m  S1=a2=52=25 m2  V=31 S1 h=31 25 14=3350 m3=116.6667 m3
h2=h2+(a/2)2=142+(5/2)214.2215 m  S2=2a h2=25 14.221535.5537 m2  S=S1+4 S2=25+4 35.5537=167.2146 m2
