The Area of a Trapezoid calculator computes the area of a trapezoid based on the measure of the the top (a) and bottom (b) sides and the height (h).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Trapezoid Area (A): The calculator returns the area (A) in square meters. However, this can be automatically converted to other area units via the pull-down menu.
A trapezoid is a special case of a, four sided polygon, where two non-adjacent sides are parallel (see diagram).
Trapezoid or trapezium, as it's known in the UK, is a quadrilateral with two parallel sides, shown as the top and bottom in this diagram. The height of a trapezoid (h) is the perpendicular distance between the two parallel sides.
A trapezoid volume is made of four trapezoids one the sides.
