12 : C Program to Calculate Volume of Pyramid

Check out the complete list of c-programs : C Program List    

To calculate the volume of Pyramid, you need to ask user to enter breadth and height of Pyramid.

Variables :

1. breadth : (Datatype int) : to represent the breadth 1 of pyramid.

2. height : (Datatype int) : to represent the height of pyramid.

5. volume_of_pyramid : (Datatype float) : to store volume of pyramid calculated.

Functions :

printf() : is used to display something on the console/screen. Format specifier %d in printf function is used to display a int variable on screen and %lf for float. \n is used to add a newline

scanf() : is used to fetch data inputted by the user on the console/screen using keyboard. %d in scanf is indicates that inputted text is of type int and %f for float.

Formula :

Volume of a Pyramid : (1/3) x Breadth x Height
