In geometry, a rhombus is a quadrilateral whose four sides are of equal length. It is a special case of the parallelogram; a rhombus with right angles is a square.

Rhombi hold the following properties:

  • All four sides are of equal length (congruent)
  • Opposite sides are parallel to one another
    • Parallelogram
  • Opposite angles are of equal measure (congruent)
  • Adjacent angles are supplementary to one another
  • Diagonals bisect the angles of the corners they connect
  • Diagonals bisect one another
  • Diagonals intersect at right angles

Diangle lengths

p=a\sqrt{2(1-\cos(\theta))}
q=a\sqrt{2(1+\cos(\theta))}

Area

A=a^2\sqrt{1-\cos^2(\theta)}

Circumcircle

R=\frac{a}{\sqrt{2\sin^2(\theta)}}

Incircle

r=\frac{a\sin(\theta)}{2}
