Today I learned that this particular polyhedron is called an "obelisk." I found it very helpful, this calculation was critical in understanding if the volume of a metal mould I am having developed would be large enough to hold a certain amount of liquid—as it turns out is was too small for my needs, so this calculator just saved me several weeks and a bunch of money with mould revisions! I can now go to our mould maker and say it needs to be larger.

Purpose of use
calculate filling volume of hopper
Comment/Request
would be really nice to have a formula to calculate a volume at a height within the obelisk/parazoid. so if you want to have an intermediate level, where you don't know the exact top/base dimensions from, where you only know this of the complete hopper

I found different formula that give different result.
V=h/3 (AB+ab+sqrt(AB x ab)
