Length of diagonal of a parallelogram using adjacent sides and angle between them

  • Last Updated : 08 Apr, 2021

Given two integers a and b where a and b represents the length of adjacent sides of a parallelogram and an angle 0 between them, the task is to find the length of diagonal of the parallelogram.

Examples:

Attention reader! All those who say programming isn't for kids, just haven't met the right mentors yet. Join the  Demo Class for First Step to Coding Coursespecifically designed for students of class 8 to 12. 

The students will get to learn more about the world of programming in these free classes which will definitely help them in making a wise career choice in the future.

Input: a = 6, b = 10, 0=30
Output: 6.14
 



Input: a = 3, b = 5, 0=45
Output: 3.58

Approach: Consider a parallelogram ABCD with sides a and b, now apply cosine rule at angle A in the triangle ABD to find the length of diagonal p, similarly find diagonal q from triangle ABC.

Therefore the diagonals is given by:
 

Diagonal (P)=\sqrt{a^2+b^2-2ab.cos(\theta)}

#include <bits/stdc++.h>

// Function to return the length
// Of diagonal of a parallelogram
// using sides and angle between them.
double Length_Diagonal(int a, int b, double theta)
{
    double diagonal = sqrt((pow(a, 2) + pow(b, 2)) -
                      2 * a * b * cos(theta * (PI / 180)));
 
    return diagonal;
