This **Area of a Pentagon** calculator computes the area of a regular pentagon, a polygon with 5 equal sides of length (**s**).

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**s**) Length of Sides of pentagon

**AREA (A):** The area is returned in square meters. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units (e.g., square feet, acres) via the pull-down menu.

A regular pentagon has five equal sides and equal angles. The formula for the area of a regular pentagon is as follows:

`A = 1/4 * sqrt( 5*(5 + 2* sqrt(5)))* s^2`

where:

- A = Area of the Pentagon
- s = Length of the sides

A **pentagon **is a polygon with five sides and five angles. It is a two-dimensional geometric shape formed by connecting five straight line segments (sides) in a closed loop. Each interior angle of a **regular pentagon** (where all sides and angles are equal) measures 108 degrees. The sum of the interior angles in any **pentagon **is 540 degrees.

**Pentagons **can come in various forms, and their sides and angles may have different lengths and measures. **Regular pentagons** are often encountered in geometry and design, and they have a symmetrical and balanced appearance. In practical terms, **pentagons **might be found in certain architectural elements, decorative patterns, and various other contexts.

- Pentagon Area: Regular pentagon area from side length.
- Irregular Pentagon Area: Area from sides and diagonals.
- Pentagon Side Length: Side length of regular pentagon from area.
- Pentagon Volume: Volume of regular pentagon column.
- Pentagon Planter: Soil volume and planting surface area of a pentagon shaped raised planter.
- Water in a Pentagon Pond: Water to fill a pentagon (regular) shaped pond at depth.
- Dodecahedron Surface Area: Surface area of regular dodecahedron based on side length.
- Dodecahedron Volume: Volume of regular dodecahedron based on side length.

In three dimensions, twelve (12) **regular pentagons** can be fused to form a dodecahedron. A dodecahedron is a three-dimensional geometric shape characterized by having 12 flat faces, 20 vertices (corners), and 30 edges. Each face is a **regular pentagon**. Dodecahedra can be found in various natural and man-made forms. In geometry, they are studied for their interesting properties and symmetrical characteristics. In certain games and puzzles, dodecahedra may also be used as components or shapes.

A **regular polygon** is a geometric shape with three or more straight sides where every side is the same length and every angle between connecting sides are the same angle. Because of the symmetry of the regular polygon, all the vertices of the polygon can be constructed to touch a circle in which the regular polygon is inscribed and all the chords that are polygon sides will then obviously be of equal length . Likewise, because of the regular polygon's symmetry, a circle constructed to be inscribed in a regular polygon and touching the polygon will touch the regular polygon at the midpoint of the polygon side. As shown in the pictures, Figure 1 and Figure 2, lines from the regular polygon's vertices to the circle's center form n isosceles triangles of equal area.

The names of polygons vary based on the number of sides as follows:

- triangle - 3 sides
- square - 4 sides
- pentagon - 5 sides
- hexagon - 6 sides
- heptagon - 7 sides
- octagon - 8 sides
- nonagon - 9 sides
- decagon - 10 sides
- hendecagon - 11 sides
- dodecagon - 12 sides
