√ = square root
Calculate certain variables of a rhombus depending on the inputs provided. Calculations include side lengths, corner angles, diagonals, height, perimeter and area of a rhombus.
A rhombus is a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel and all sides equal length. A rhombus whose angles are all right angles is called a square. A rhombus (or diamond) is a parallelogram with all 4 sides equal length.
* Units: Note that units of length are shown for convenience. They do not affect the calculations. The units are in place to give an indication of the order of the calculated results such as ft, ft^{2} or ft^{3}. Any other base unit can be substituted.
Corner Angles: A, B, C, D
- A = C
- B = D
- A + B = 180° = π radians
- for a rhombus that is not a square,
- 0 < A< 90° (0 < A < π/2)
- 90° < B < 180° (π/2 < B < π)
Area: K
with A and B in radians,
K = ah = a^{2} sin(A) = a^{2} sin(B) = pq/2
Height: h
- h = h_{a} = h_{b}
- h = a sin(A) = a sin(B)
Diagonals: p, q
- p = a √( 2 - 2 cos(A) ) = a √( 2 + 2 cos(B) )
- q = a √( 2 + 2 cos(A) ) = a √( 2 - 2 cos(B) )
- p^{2} + q^{2} = 4a^{2}
Perimeter: P
P = 4a
