The formula for the area of a square is simple -- it's side squared, or s^2. But if you've ever wondered whether you could find a square's area by using its diagonal(s), the answer is yes.
 +
And it's simple, like the saying, "The shortest distance between any two points is the hypotenuse!"
 +
 
 +
[[Category:Calculating Volume and Area]]
 +
[[Category:Mathematics]]
 +
 
 +
== Steps ==
 +
=== The Formula ===
 +
#Consider a square whose diagonal measures '''d''' units.[[Image:Find the Area of a Square Using the Length of its Diagonal Step 1 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 +
#The area of this square can be calculated using the formula:<br><br>'''Area = d<sup>2</sup>/2'''[[Image:Find the Area of a Square Using the Length of its Diagonal Step 2 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 +
#Consider that, if you are given the diagonal and you know that the diagonal of a square is side * sqrt(2), then you may divide both sides by sqrt(2) and obtain from d=s*sqrt(2) that d/sqrt(2) = s. Since s^2 is the area, then (d/sqrt(2))^2 = s^2. Given d = 10 cm for example, you may get it the easy way that (10/sqrt(2))^2 = 100/2 = 50, very quickly. If you know that sqrt(2)=1.414 and are given the diagonal, say 10 cm, then you may divide 10/1.414 to get 7.072, which then squared = 50. Thus 50 sq. cm is the Area and answer. The first way is generally more accurate because sqrt(2) is irrational and transcendental. The way you approach it may depend on whether you are also asked to answer what the side's measurement is. Done.
 +
=== Proof ===
 +
#Let us consider a square whose side measures '''a''' units.[[Image:Find the Area of a Square Using the Length of its Diagonal Step 3 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 +
#We know that the area of square is equal to (Side)<sup>2</sup>. <br>The side being '''a''' here, we have <br>'''Area = a<sup>2</sup>'''..........(Equation 1)[[Image:Find the Area of a Square Using the Length of its Diagonal Step 4 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 +
#Join any two opposite vertices to mark a diagonal. Let the measure of this diagonal be '''d''' units. This diagonal divides the square into two right-triangles.[[Image:Find the Area of a Square Using the Length of its Diagonal Step 5 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 +
#Apply Pythagorean Theorem to any one of these triangles.<br><br>a<sup>2</sup>+a<sup>2</sup>=d<sup>2</sup><br><br>=> 2 a<sup>2</sup> = d<sup>2</sup><br><br>=> a<sup>2</sup> = d<sup>2</sup>/2[[Image:Find the Area of a Square Using the Length of its Diagonal Step 6 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 +
#Plug in the value of a<sup>2</sup> obtained in the preceding step into the Equation (1). Thus we see,<br><br>'''Area = d<sup>2</sup>/2'''[[Image:Find the Area of a Square Using the Length of its Diagonal Step 7 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 +
=== Example ===
 +
#Find the area of a square whose diagonal measures {{convert|10|cm|in|sp=us|adj=on|1}}.[[Image:Find the Area of a Square Using the Length of its Diagonal Step 8 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 +
#Using '''Area = d<sup>2</sup>/2''', we have <br><br> Area = 10<sup>2</sup>/2 = 100/2 = 50 cm<sup>2</sup>[[Image:Find the Area of a Square Using the Length of its Diagonal Step 9 Version 2.jpg|center]]
 +
=== Alternative Method ===
 +
#Find the area for a square whose side measures s units by using the diagonal:[[Image:Find the Area of a Square Using the Length of its Diagonal Step 10.jpg|center]]
 +
#Because 1^2 has the diagonal sqrt(2) by the Pythagorean Theorem, i.e.
 +
1^2 + 1^2 = (side*sqrt(2))^2, all squares have the diagonal, side * sqrt(2).
 +
* Thus, per the above equations, the area of the square is the diagonal squared divided by 2. For side = s, [(s*sqrt(2))^2]/2 = the Area of the Square. Notice that ((sqrt(2))^2)/2 = 1, so just s^2 = A remains.
 +
* This is useful in the more common case where the side is given in even integers, rather than the diagonal.
 +
* Besides, if one is given that the diagonal = 10 and is asked to find both the area and the length of the side, without this alternative method, it is difficult, because one needs to divide 10 by the square root of 2 or 1.414 (1.4142135623731 to be more exact) and obtain the side's length of 7.071, which when squared = 50. 10^2 /2 = 50 also. But if the hypotenuse squared = 100, then the sides a1 and a2 each = 7.071 and square to be 50. Therefore the diagonal squared, over 2, all squared also equals the area.
 +
*Otherwise, quickly find the root of the area by a method like the Newton-Raphson method (please see related wikiHow article below).[[Image:Find the Area of a Square Using the Length of its Diagonal Step 11.jpg|center]]
 +
*In the above formula pictured, i.e. 1^2 + 1^2 = (side * sqrt(2))^2, is only correct if side = 1. But. s^2 + s^2 = 2s^2 = (side*sqrt(2))^2. Which means that sqrt(2)*s=s*sqrt(2), or d=d. That doesn't really lead anywhere. But if you take the diagonal, d=s*sqrt(2), and square it, and then divide by sqrt(2), and square that too, the result will be the Area. That is, (s*sqrt(2))^2 = 2s^2 and that divided by 2 gives s^2, the Area. So A = (s*sqrt(2))^2 / (sqrt(2))^2 = (d/sqrt(2))^2. This is another way to find the Area, given only the length of the sides, but asked to use the diagonal to determine the Area. The formula works out to the same as the one above, but the logic is a bit different. Here, we have directly reasoned that the Area of the square is half of the diagonal squared, which tells one that if one makes a square on the diagonal, exactly 1/2 of that = the Area of the originating square for the diagonal, and it does not matter how one creates that half.
 +
This simple fact is important in crystallography and chemistry, very much so. And it is also important to artists, choreographers, machinists, et al.
 +
It is also a fact that the hypotenuse, or diagonal, is the shortest distance between two points. Thus, if you know how far you've traveled between any two points, since d=sqrt(2)* side s and Area = d^2/2, you may quickly form the grid around your location and be aware of the area you are surveying. Why? Since if you can see your destination, than at the middle of the diagonal you can see 1/2 the length of the diagonal to the destination to either side. However, if you could not originally see your destination, at least when you're halfway there, you can see half of it to either side. This fact is useful in surveying, photography and perspective in art.
 +
By the way, the shortest distance is the hypotenuse between two points, but given vectors to the lower destination and straight downwards, the brachistochrone curve is the shortest distance in terms of time between two points. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brachistochrone_curve for a review of this important curve, especially given curved Einsteinian space. The curve is the inverted cycloid, or path traced out by one point on a moving circle in a straight line, only upside down. It has been said and shown that light moves according to this curve, to take the least possible time to arrive at a destination. It is also the fundaments of the modern infinitesimal calculus. There is no imparted force to a ball or bead descending this curve though (it moves per gravity) and friction causes a different resulting curve as the answer. What is the imparted force when light is created, for example by an electron changing orbital shells? What is the force of light? Perhaps, since light is massless, you will be the genius to figure it out.
 +
=== n.b. The Square's Diagonal and Neutral Operations ===
 +
#* Let the diagonal be held neutral as between Addition and Multiplication. s = side:
 +
# Express this formulaically as
 +
#** (s+sqrt(2)^2)/2 = (s*sqrt(2)^2)/2 = c, then, taking the square root of both sides, we have
 +
#** (s+sqrt(2))/sqrt(2) = (s*sqrt(2))/sqrt(2), then multiplying both sides by sqrt(2) gives us
 +
#** (s+sqrt(2)) = (s*sqrt(2)), and subtracting s from both sides, we then have
 +
#**  sqrt(2) = s*(sqrt(2)-1) ... having simplified the left and factored on the right.
 +
#**  sqrt(2)/(sqrt(2)-1) = s when we divide both sides by (sqrt(2)-1) and simplify.
 +
#**  3.414213562 = s, as we solve the left side of the equation.
 +
#**  Test that against the original hypothesis, that (s+sqrt(2)^2)/2 = (s*sqrt(2)^2)/2 = c;
 +
#**  (3.414213562+sqrt(2)^2)/2 = (3.414213562*sqrt(2)^2)/2 = c = 11.65685425;
 +
#** Which is amazing enough, but consider also that 3.414213562^2 = 11.65685425!!
 +
#** Lastly, be aware that 2 + sqrt(2) = 3.414213562 !! That is, geometrically, two sides of 1 and the diagonal as the third leg -- 3.414213562 is the sum of those three numbers! That figure squared is the same as saying that Addition and Multiplication are neutral for the diagonal! And we square it the figure by swinging it 90 degrees to the z axis, which movement resembles the thumb, index and middle fingers swinging to grab an object, with the wrist at {0,0}. This is of perhaps of some interest and use to musicians, artists and sports professionals, et al.

You can see that the population density of Auburn is far higher than the population density of Boonesville. Consider whether you can use this difference to draw any conclusions about the two cities.

#Define the area. Figure out the boundaries of the region for which you want to know the population density. Think about why you want this number. Perhaps you want to find the population density of your country, your city, or your neighborhood. You will need to find the total area of this place: usually in feet, miles, meters, or kilometers.
 +
 
 +
#*Odds are that someone else has already measured and surveyed this area. Look for census data, read an encyclopedia, or run a web search.
 +
#*Find out whether the area has any set boundaries. If not, you'll need to define them yourself. A neighborhood, for instance, may not be listed in the census, so you'll need to draw the borders yourself.
 +
 
 +
#Determine the population. Short of counting the population yourself, you'll need to find an up-to-date record of how many people live in this area. Start by running a web search for the population of the place – say, the city of Houston, Texas. Look for the most recent census data for a relatively accurate number. If you are looking for the population of a country, the CIA World Factbook is a good source.
 +
 
 +
#*If you are calculating the population density for an area that has not already been recorded, you may need to count the population yourself. This might include a colloquially-defined urban neighborhood, for instance, or a population of kangaroos in a section of the Australian Outback. Try to get as accurate a number as possible.
 +
 
 +
#Balance your data. If you plan to compare one area against another, make sure that all of your numbers use a common unit of measurement. For instance, if one county is listed in square miles and another is listed in square km, you will need to convert the area of both countries into either square miles or square km.

 +
#*The unit of population density is people per unit of area. For instance, 2000 people per square mile.
 +
 
 +
#Plug your data into the formula. You should know the population and the surface area of the region. For example: if there are 145,000 people in the city of Auburn, and the urban area covers 9 square miles, write 145,000/9 square miles.
 +
 
 +
#Divide the population by the area size. Use long division, or just use a calculator. In our example, 145,000 divided by 9 would show that the population density is 16,111 people/square mile.
 +
 
 +
==Interpreting Population Density==
 +
 
 +
#Compare population density. Compare data from multiple areas, and use the contrasting population densities to make observations about those areas. For example: if the city of Boonesville includes 60,000 people overs its 8 square miles, then its population density is 7,500/square mile. You can see that the population density of Auburn is far higher than the population density of Boonesville. Consider whether you can use this difference to draw any conclusions about the two cities.
 +
 
 +
#*Even if you calculate the population density of an area as dense as a large city, the resulting figure will not tell you much about the differences between individual neighborhoods. You may need to find the density for various area scales in order to fully understand a place.
 +
 
 +
#Try including population growth. [[Calculate Growth Rate|Calculate the projected population growth]] for a given area, then compare the current population density with the predicted future density. Look for census data from the past, and try comparing past population densities with the current figure. Try to understand how a place has changed and will change.

+
#Be aware of the limitations. It is simple and straightforward to calculate population density in this way, but it may not reveal more intricate details about an area. This is highly dependent upon the size and type of the area for which you are calculating population density. The formula sometimes says more about smaller, densely-inhabited areas than it does about larger areas that include both inhabited and uninhabited land.
  
 +
#*Say that you calculate the population density of a county that is home to a huge amount of open land and national forest, but also to a very large city. The population density of the county at large will not tell you much about the density of the city: the actual space where people live.
  
 +
#*Remember that population density is just an average. It may not correspond exactly to the population count of an area. If not, consider why. Try calculating the density for a smaller area within the original area.
  
 +
#Think about the data. Make predictions about an area given when you know about high and low population densities. For instance, areas with high population densities tend to have higher crime rates and higher prices for housing and goods. Low-density areas tend to feature more agriculture, and they often include more wilderness or open space. The conclusions that you draw about a given area or areas will depend upon your purposes. Think about how you can make this data insightful.

It is far better to sell too early than to have your profits turn into losses in the subsequent bear market.
