Python Math: Calculate the volume of a tetrahedron

Python Math: Exercise-64 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the volume of a tetrahedron.

Note: In geometry, a tetrahedron (plural: tetrahedra or tetrahedrons) is a polyhedron composed of four triangular faces, six straight edges, and four vertex corners. The tetrahedron is the simplest of all the ordinary convex polyhedra and the only one that has fewer than 5 faces.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import math
def volume_tetrahedron(num):
	volume = (num ** 3 / (6 * math.sqrt(2)))
	return round(volume, 2)


Sample Output:

Lambdas for Sorting:

>>> students = [{'name': 'John', 'score': 98}, {'name': 'Mike', 'score': 94}, {'name': 'Jennifer', 'score': 99}]
>>> sorted(students, key=lambda x: x['score'])
[{'name': 'Mike', 'score': 94}, {'name': 'John', 'score': 98}, {'name': 'Jennifer', 'score': 99}]
