# Form Factor:Octahedron

## Equations

For a regular octahedron of edge-length 2*R*

- Volume
- Projected (
*xy*) surface area - Surface area

## Pyramid

The Octagon shaped can be considered to be formed from two square-based pyramids. Similarly the form factor can be computed from appropriate summation of two pyramid form factors.
