To find the length of the diagonal of a square, multiply the length of one side by the square root of 2: If the length of one side is x... The central angle of a square: The diagonals of a square intersect (cross) at a 90-degree angle.

oh it is a square so length l and breadth b will be the same

\(d^2=2l^2\\ d=\sqrt{2l^2}\;\;units\)

\(\sqrt{2l^2}=l\sqrt2\)

\(\sqrt{2l^2}\)

This can be simplified further:

Im going to use a radical rule that says \(\sqrt[n]{ab}=\sqrt[n]{a}\sqrt[n]{b}\hspace{1cm}\), assuming \(a\geq0,b\geq0\). You might notice that there is a condition for using this. This rule only works when both a and b are nonnegative. In the context of geometry, \(l\) should be positive because otherwise a square couldn't exist if a side length is -8, for example. I will apply this rule:

\(\sqrt{2l^2}=\sqrt{2}\sqrt{l^2}\)

Here, too, I will apply a rule that only works with nonnegative numbers: \(\sqrt[n]{a^n}=a\), assuming \(a\geq0\). Let's apply it now:

\(\sqrt{2}\sqrt{l^2}=\sqrt{2}*l=l\sqrt{2}\).

I just wanted you to be aware of this. You can't simplify \(\sqrt{2l^2}\) further otherwise.
