Kite Tutorial

Kite Definition:

A kite is a quadrilateral with two pairs of adjacent sides that are congruent. The diagonals of a kite are perpendicular.

Kite Formula :

Diagonal Method :
Area of Kite = ½ * d1 * d2
Trigonometry Method:
Area of Kite = a * b * SinCPerimeter of Kite = 2(a + b)
where
a = length, b = breadth, d1, d2 are diagonals

Kite Example :
Case 1:

Find the area of a kite with the given diagonals 2, 4 using Diagonal Method.

Step 1:

Find the area. Area = ½ * d1 * d2 = 0.5 * 2 * 4 = 4.

Case 2:

Find the area of a kite with the given length 2 and breadth 3 using Trigonometry Method.

Step 1:

Find the area. Area = a * b * SinC = 2 * 3 * Sin(33) = 6 * 1 = 6.

Case 3:

Find the perimeter of a kite with the givenlength 2 and breadth 3.

Step 1:

Find the perimeter. Perimeter = 2(a + b) = 2(2 + 3) = 2(5) = 10. The above example will clearly illustrates how to calculate the Area, Perimeter of a Kite manually.
