A Kite is a quadrilateral with four sides that can be grouped into two pairs of equal-length which are next to each other or congruent. The diagonals of kite are perpendicular.
Diagonal Method: Area of Kite = ½ * d
_{1} * d
_{2}
Trigonometry Method: Area of Kite = a * b * SinC
Perimeter of Kite = 2(a + b)
where,
a = length, b = breadth, d1, d2 are diagonals
A Kite is made up of two sides where each pair is made up of adjacent sides that are equal in length. The angles of the kite are equal where the pairs meet.
A Kite is a quadrilateral with two distinct pairs of equal adjacent sides.
Examples:
Step 1: Find the area of a kite with the given diagonals 4,6 using Diagonal Method.
Find the area.
Area = ½ * d_{1} * d_{2} = 0.5 * 4 * 6 = 12.00
Step 2: Find the area of a kite with the given length 2 and breadth 3 using Trigonometry Method.
Find the area.
Area = a * b * SinC = 2 * 3 * Sin (33) = 6 * 1 = 6.
Step 3: Find the perimeter of a kite with the given length 2 and breadth 3.
Find the perimeter.
Perimeter = 2(a + b) = 2(2 + 3) = 2(5) = 10.
