# Rectangle Pyramid Pile

Calculate the volume of a pile in the shape of a pyramid using feet for measurements. The base is assumed to be in a retactangular shape and the top coming to a point.

### Rectangular Pyramid Pile

Length ft
Width ft
Height ft

#### Results:

 Pile Volume in Cubic Feet ft³ Pile Volume in Cubic Yards yd³ Pile Volume in Cubic Metres m³ Base Area ft² Lateral Area ft²

#### Calculation

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

#### Result

1. the volume of the pile in cubic feet
2. the volume of the pile in cubic yards
3. the volume of the pile in cubic metres
4. the base area of the pile
5. the lateral area of the pile
##### 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 foot (ft³)	0.037	cubic yards (yd³)
one cubic foot (ft³)	0.0283 cubic metres (m³)
```
