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.

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)
