Calculate the volume of a pile that is in the shape of a rectangle pyramid using metres for measurements.

### Rectangular Pyramid Pile - Metric

Length m
Width m
Height m

#### Results:

 Pile Volume in Cubic Metres m³ Pile Volume in Cubic Yards yd³ Pile Volume in Cubic Feet ft³ Base Area m² Lateral Area m²

#### Calculation

1. enter the length of the pile in metres
2. the pile width in metres
3. the height of the pile in metres

#### Result

1. the volume of the pile in cubic metres
2. the volume of the pile in cubic yards
3. the volume of the pile in cubic feet
4. the area of the base in square metres
5. the lateral area of the pile square metres
##### Formula
```v = lwh/3
ba = lw
La =l√(w/2)²+h²+w√ (l/2)²+h²
where v is the volume of the pile in cubic feet
ba the base area in square feet
La the lateral are of the pile in square feet
l the length of the pile in feet
w the width of the pile in feet
h the the pile height in feet
```
##### Conversions
```one cubic metre (m³) 1.31 cubic yards (yd³)
one cubic metre (m³) 35.315 cubic feet (ft³)
