Program to calculate area of a rhombus whose one side and diagonal are given
  • Difficulty Level : Expert
  • Last Updated : 07 Apr, 2021

Given the length of diagonal ‘d1’ of a rhombus and a side ‘a’, the task is to find the area of that rhombus.
 

A rhombus is a polygon having 4 equal sides in which both the opposite sides are parallel, and opposite angles are equal.

 

Examples: 
 



Input: d = 15, a = 10
Output: 99.21567416492215

Input: d = 20, a = 18
Output: 299.3325909419153

 

Approach:
 

  • Get the diagonal ‘d1’ and side ‘a’ of the rhombus
  • We know that, 
     

  •  
  • But since we don’t know the other diagonal d2, we cannot use this formula yet
  • So we first find the second diagonal d2 with the help of d1 and a
     

  •  
  • Now we can use the area formula to compute the area of the Rhombus

 

C++




// C++ program to calculate the area of a rhombus
// whose one side and one diagonal is given
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// function to calculate the area of the rhombus
double area(double d1, double a)
{
     
    // Second diagonal
    double d2 = sqrt(4 * (a * a) - d1 * d1);
 
    // area of rhombus
    double area = 0.5 * d1 * d2;
 
    // return the area
    return area;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    double d = 7.07;
    double a = 5;
    printf("%0.8f", area(d, a));
}

        // Second diagonal
        double d2 = Math.sqrt(4 * (a * a) - d1 * d1);
     
        // area of rhombus
        double area = 0.5 * d1 * d2;
     
        // return the area
        return area;
    }
     
    // Driver code
    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
        double d = 7.07;
        double a = 5;
        System.out.println(area(d, a));
