The Length of Polygon Side calculator computes the length of the individual sides (segments) of a regular polygon given the number of sides of the regular polygon and the radius, r, of a circumscribed (outer) circle.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Polygon Side Length (s): The calculator returns the length of the sides in meters. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
A regular n-sided polygon is a polygon with n equal length sides and is a polygon which has n equal angles at the n vertices of the polygon. Because of the symmetry of this construction, all the vertices of the regular polygon lie on the circle and the sides of the regular polygons form n chords of the circle.
Theand number of sides is:
