Formula: Octahedron (Polyhedron) Area   

Formula: Octahedron (Polyhedron)
Octahedron with Side Lengths


Surface area of an octahedron consisting of eight triangular faces and having six vertices. The prefactor is approximately: \( 2 \sqrt{3} ~\approx~ 3.46\).

Side length

Length of one side of an octahedron. Since it is a regular polyhedron, all edges are of equal length.
