Square Calculator is an online tool used to find the area, perimeter and diagonals of a square.

A square is a closed geometrical shape with four sides and all corners are right angle(900). In square all four  sides are equal. This is one of the types of quadrilateral. 
Square
The units of length that will not affect the calculations. The unit remains same for perimeter and diagonals of a square, only it defer for area of a square (i.e. from unit to unit square). Any other base unit can be substituted.
 

Steps for Finding Square

Back to Top
Step 1 :  

Square Formula's:


 


Area of the Square


 


A = a2


 


Where A = area, a = side length


 


Perimeter of the Square


 


P = 4a


 


Where P = perimeter


 


Diagonals of a Square


 


q = a$\sqrt{2}$


 


Where q = diagonal length



Step 2 :  

Put the values in the above formula's and solve it further.

  1. Calculate Area, Square and Diagonal of a square. Given side length 'a' is 4m.


    Step 1 :  

    Given: side length 'a' = 4 m.


     



    Area of the Square


     


    A = a2


     


    Where A = area, a = side length


     


    Perimeter of the Square


     


    P = 4a


     


    Where P = perimeter


     


    Diagonals of a Square


     


    q = a$\sqrt{2}$


     


    Where q = diagonal length




    Step 2 :  

    Put the values in the above formula's and solve it further.


     


    Area of the Square


     


    A = (4)2 = 16 m2 


     


    Perimeter of the Square


     


    P = 4(4) = 16 m


     


    Diaoganals of a Square


     


    q = 4$\sqrt{2}$ = 5.65m




    Answer  :  

    Area of the Square = 16 m2

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Perimeter of the Square = 16 m

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Diaognals of a Square = 5.65 m



  2. Calculate Area, Square and Diagonal of a square. Given side length 'a' is 6 cm.


    Step 1 :  

    Given: side length 'a' = 6 cm.



     


    Area of the Square


     


    A = a2


     


    Where A = area, a = side length


     


    Perimeter of the Square


     


    P = 4a


     


    Where P = perimeter


     


    Diagonals of a Square


     


    q = a$\sqrt{2}$


     


    Where q = diagonal length





    Step 2 :  


    Put the values in the above formula's and solve it further.


     


    Area of the Square


     


    A = (6)2 = 36 cm2 


     


    Perimeter of the Square


     


    P = 4(6) = 24 cm


     


    Diaoganals of a Square


     


    q = 6$\sqrt{2}$ = 8.485 cm





    Answer  :  


    Area of the Square = 36 cm2




     




    Perimeter of the Square = 24 cm




     




    Diaognals of a Square = 8.485 cm
