Hexagon

Definitions:
  • a: Edge Length
  • U: Perimeter
  • A: Area
U a Layer 1

Perimeter of a Hexagon

The perimeter U is the length of all 6 sides.

\(U=6*a\)
U = Perimeter
a = Edge Length
\(a=U/6\)
a = Edge Length
U = Perimeter

A a Layer 1

Area of a Hexagon

The region inside a hexagon.

\(A=(3/2)*(a^2)*sqrt(3)\)
A = Area
a = Edge Length
\(a=sqrt(A/((3/2)*sqrt(3)))\)
a = Edge Length
A = Area
