Hexagons and Squares  Diagonal Lengths
Distances between corners for hexagons and squares.
Hexagon
The distance between the corners in a hexagon as indicated in the figure can be expressed as
D_{h} = (2 / 3) 3^{1/2} d
= 1.154701 d (1)
Square
The distance between corners  length of diagonal  in a square can be expressed as
D_{s} = 2^{1/2} 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
D_{h} = 1.154701 0.4
= 0.462 m
