COMMENTS

Diameter of a sphere with volume Pi.  Omar E. Pol, Aug 09 2012
Also the height h that minimizes the total surface area (including the base) of a square pyramid of unit volume: at h = 6^(1/3), the surface area reaches its minimum value, 12*6^(1/3) = 12/h. The ratio of its height to the length of one of its sides is h/sqrt(3/h) = sqrt(2), and the slope of its four triangular faces is arctan(sqrt(8)) = 70.528779... degrees (cf. A137914). (For the height that minimizes the total surface area of just the four triangular faces of a square pyramid of unit volume  i.e., excluding the base  see A319034.)  Jon E. Schoenfield, Nov 10 2018
