Program for Surface area of Dodecahedron

  • Difficulty Level : Hard
  • Last Updated : 30 Apr, 2021

Given the edge of the dodecahedron calculate its surface area. Surface area is the amount of space that all the faces of the shape take up.
Formula: \mathbf{A=3\sqrt{25+10\sqrt{5}}\hspace{2 mm} a^{2}}
Examples: 
 

Input : 3
Output : 185.812

Input : 7
Output : 1011.64

A dodecahedron is a 3-dimensional figure made up of 12 faces, or flat sides. All of the faces are pentagons of the same size. The word ‘dodecahedron’ comes from the Greek words dodeca (‘twelve’) and hedron (‘faces’). Every shape has properties and characteristics. So has dodecahedron 
 

  • 12 equal pentagonal faces
  • 20 vertices
  • 30 edges

where pentagon is a 2-dimensional shape with 5 straight sides and 5 vertices. So, a dodecahedron has 12 of these flat, equal pentagonal faces. So one can think of dodecahedron as a 12 faced dice(Usually not seen) but can be in a Battleball board game.

}
 
 
    // Driver Code
     
    let side = 3;
     
    document.write("Surface area of dodecahedron = "
    + Math.round(area_of_dodecahedron(side)*1000)/1000);
     
     
</script>

Output:

Surface area of dodecahedron = 185.812
