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.

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

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.

## Square Examples

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

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

Area of the Square = 36 cm2

Perimeter of the Square = 24 cm

Diaognals of a Square = 8.485 cm
