# 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 cm^{2}

**Note:**

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