Biggest Reuleaux Triangle inscirbed within a square inscribed in a semicircle
  • Last Updated : 17 Mar, 2021

Given here is a semicircle of radius r which inscribes a square which in turn inscribes a reuleaux triangle. The task is to find the maximum possible area of this reuleaux triangle.
Examples: 
 

Input : x = 5  
Output : 14.0954

Input : x = 8
Output : 36.0842

 

 

Approach:We know, the side of the square inscribed within a semicircle is, a = 2r/√5. (Please refer here)
Also, in the reuleaux triangle, x = a
So, x = 2*r/√5 
So, Area of Reuleaux Triangle
 



A = 0.70477*x^2 = 0.70477*(r^2/5)

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ Program to find the biggest Reuleaux triangle
// inscribed within in a square which in turn
// is inscribed within a semicircle
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find the biggest reuleaux triangle
float Area(float r)
{
 
    // radius cannot be negative
    if (r < 0)
        return -1;
 
    // height of the reuleaux triangle
    float x = (2 * r) / sqrt(5);
 
    // area of the reuleaux triangle
    float A = 0.70477 * pow(x, 2);
 
    return A;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    float r = 5;
    cout << Area(r) << endl;
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java Program to find the biggest
// Reuleaux triangle inscribed within
// in a square which in turn is
// inscribed within a semicircle
import java.lang.Math;
 
class GFG
{
 
// Function to find the biggest reuleaux triangle
static float Area(float r)
{
 
    // radius cannot be negative
    if (r < 0)
        return -1;
 
    // height of the reuleaux triangle
    float x = (2 * r) /(float)(Math.sqrt(5));
 
    // area of the reuleaux triangle
    float A = 0.70477f *(float)(Math.pow(x, 2));
 
    return A;
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    float r = 5;
    System.out.println(Area(r));
}
}

    x = (2 * r) / mt.sqrt(5)
 
    # area of the reuleaux triangle
    A = 0.70477 * pow(x, 2)
 
    return A
