The volume of a triangular pyramid can be found using the formula V = 1/3AH where A = area of the triangle base, and H = height of the pyramid or the distance from the pyramid's base to the apex.

would this be the same if the base was not triangular?

If the base is a square or rectangle , yes  , volume =  1/3 (base area * height)

V = 1/3(Ah)
where A = 1/2(bh) (standard right-triangle)
so : V = 1/6(bhH)
