The base of a pyramid covers an area of 13.0 acres (1 acre = 43 560 ft2) and has a height of 481 ft (Fig. P1.30). If the volume of a pyramid is given by the expression V = bh/3, where b is the area of the base and h is the height, find the volume of this pyramid in cubic meters. Figure P1.30

To determine
The volume of the pyramid.

Explanation

Given Info: The base of the pyramid is 13acres and the height o f the pyramid is 481ft .

Explanation:

Formula to calculate the volume of the pyramid is,

V=13bh

• V is volume of the pyramid
• b is base of the pyramid,
• h is the height of the pyramid

From unit transformation,

1acre=43560ft2

1ft3=2.832×102m3

Substitute 13acres for b , 481ft for h to find V
