Definition

A rhombus is a quadrilater with all sides congruent

Properties

  1. Four congruent sides, opposite sides are parallel
  2. Opposite angles are congruent, consecutive angles are supplementary (their sum is 180°)
  3. Diagonals are perpendicular
  4. Diagonals meet at a point called rhombus' center. The center divides the diagonals into two equal semi-diagonals
  5. Diagonals makes four congruent right triangles, in which the hypotenuse is represented by the rhombus' side, and the cathetus' by the semi-diagonals

Rhombus Formulas
Data Formula
Perimeter 2p = S× 4
Area A = (d1 × d2) / 2
Side S = 2p / 4
Side S = √[ (d1 / 2)2 + (d2 / 2)2 ]
Longer Diagonal d1 = (2 × A) / d2
Shorter Diagonal d2 = (2 × A) / d1
Longer Semi-Diagonal d1 / 2 = √[ S2 - (d2 / 2)2 ]
Shorter Semi-Diagonal d2 / 2 = √[ S2 - (d1 / 2)2 ]
