All four sides of a square are of equal length and all four angles are 90 degree. The circle is circumscribed on a given square shown by a shaded region in the below diagram.
Properties of Circumscribed circle are as follows:
- The center of the circumcircle is the point where the two diagonals of a square meet.
- Circumscribed circle of a square is made through the four vertices of a square.
- The radius of a circumcircle of a square is equal to the radius of a square.
Formula used to calculate the area of circumscribed square is:
2 * r2
where, r is the radius of the circle in which a square is circumscribed by circle.
How does this formula work?
Assume diagonal of square is d and length of side is a.
We know from the Pythagoras Theorem, the diagonal of a
square is √(2) times the length of a side.
i.e d2 = a2 + a2
d = 2 * a2
d = √(2) * a
a = d / √2
and We know diagonal of square that are Circumscribed by
Circle is equal to Diameter of circle.
so Area of square = a * a
= d / √(2) * d / √(2)
= d2/ 2
= ( 2 * r )2/ 2 ( We know d = 2 * r )
= 2 * r2
Area of square = 18
Time Complexity: O(1)
