Area of a Kite

If you want to determine the space occupied by a kite, you can use our area of a kite calculator.

In geometry, the kite's area is the region space occupied by that shape. Since its diagonals are perpendicular, we can calculate it as half product between short and long diagonals. The kite is a special four-sided figure shape having four angles and vertices. The main difference between this shape and rhombus is that kites have two congruent pairs of consecutive sides, whereas rhombus consists of four congruent sides.

 

Formula of Area of a Kite Calculator

If you want to determine the space occupied by a kite, you can use the formula listed below; or, to find it, instantly jump to the area of a kite calculator.

Area of the kite = (½) p.q (square units)

Where,

p = short diagonal of a kite

q = long diagonal of a kite

Example

For a more precise understanding of the above formula, let us solve an example below:

Find a kite's area if the long and short diagonals are equivalent to 8 cm and 5cm.

Given data

Short diagonal of a kite = p = 5cm
Long diagonal of a kite = q = 8cm

To Find

Area of the kite = ?

Solution

To find out the area of the kit, we will use the formula listed below:

Area of the kite = (½) p.q (square units)

Putting values in the formula:

Area of the kite = (½) 5cm * 8cm = 20 cm2

Note:

If you want to calculate the area of a rhombus, you can use our Area Of Rhombus Calculator.
