Hexagons and Squares - Diagonal Lengths

Distance between corners for hexagons and squares

Hexgons squares - distance between corners

Hexagon

The distance between the corners in a hexagon as indicated in the figure can be expressed as

Dh = (2 / 3) 31/2 d

     = 1.154701 d                            (1)

Square

The distance between corners - length of diagonal - in a square can be expressed as

Ds = 21/2 d  

     = 1.4142 d                            (2)

Example - Distance between Corners in a Hexagon

The distance between corners in a hexagon where d = 0.4 m can be calculated as

Dh = 1.154701 0.4 

    = 0.462 m
