Radius of inscribed and circumscribed sphere in square pyramid.
How do you go about finding the radius of a inscribed and Circumscribed sphere inside a pyramid or tetrahedron or basically any 3D object? Any examples or websites that show how its done?

Take the equation of a sphere with the center and the radius r:

Plug in the coordinates of the vertices into the general equation.
After subtracting one equation from the other three equations (the square values will vanish) you have a system of three linear simultaneous equations in .
Afterwards you can calculate the length of r.
That depends on the kind of solid and it would be definitely a very special case.
