### Example Question #1 : How To Find The Diagonal Of A Tetrahedron

Given a regular tetrahedron with an edge of , what is the height (or diagonal)? The height is the line drawn from one vertex perpendicular to the opposite face.

**Possible Answers:**

None of the above.

**Correct answer:**

The height of a regular tetrahedron can be derived from the formula

where is the length of one edge.

Therefore, plugging in the side length of ,

.
